What Is Aquamation?

Aquamation, also known technically as Alkaline Hydrolysis, is a chemical process that uses a solution of water and potassium hydroxide or sodium hydroxide to reduce a body to components of liquid and bone. Remaining bone fragments are reduced to a substance similar to cremated ashes.

Additional Information

Common Misconceptions

Although there are many misconceptions about the Aquamation process, the following are the two most common myths about this process:
#1 Acid is used in the Aquamation Process: This is completely false. There is absolutely no acid used during this process. With Aquamation, the only chemical mixed with the water is an alkaline called potassium hydroxide (KOH). The reaction of KOH in water is exothermic, meaning it gives off significant heat which contributes to the hydrolyzing or breakdown of the human tissue.
#2 The Aquamation Process Boils the Body: This is also absolutely false. Aquamtion creates a highly controlled and sophisticated environment that uniquely combines water, alkali and heat. This process biochemically hydrolyzes the human body, leaving only bone fragments. During a typical Aquamtion cycle, the body is reduced, bone fragments are rinsed and reduced to a powder consistency
