NBC LOS ANGELES: A California state Assemblyman is trying to pass a bill that would allow people to have their bodily remains liquefied.

Assemblyman Jeff Miller, from Riverside/Orange County, authored bill AB 4 that would give people the opportunity to have their remains liquefied by alkaline hydrolysis.

The new technique is thought to be a green alternative to cremation, according to Assemblyman Miller’s website.

Only a few companies sell the pressure vessel in the United States, according to Lou Schaeffer sales manager for Water Resolution in Brownsberg, IN. He said the procedure is already used with animals and now the company is looking to get permission to use a larger version for human remains.

The company has only sold two of the vessels, Schaffer said, one to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota and the other to the University of Florida. He said both research facilities use the vessels to dispose of bodies used in the course of research.

That is repulsive to think about. How could this possibly be any more green than natural coffins?
