||There are two traditional possibilities to allow the deceased to rest. Either by leaving the body as it is and burying it in a coffin deep under the ground, or cremation. Company Organic AB is developing and offering a new method of laying the dead to rest, Promation. This method is less ecologically damaging than the other techniques.
The process involves freeze-drying the remains, which are then reduced to a white powder. The remains can either be placed in a biodegradeable casket, which is then interred in a shallow grave, or for those who wish to have their ashes scattered, Company has developed a small furnace to turn the powder into ashes. Within a year, the contents have fully decomposed.
