Reducing the Carbon Footprint of Bereavement Services - Greening Cremation Part 2

12-05-2021 10:00 am -11:00 am
London, UK

The fourth webinar in our environmental series is taking a look at how bereavement services can move forward in a manner which causes less damage to the environment. We are delighted to have Dennis Jacobs, a member of the DFW Europe Sales Team, speaking to us on the subject of electric cremators. Using electricity as the primary fuel for cremation is not new, however, we are seeing the first examples of a new generation of machines being installed in the UK. The new cremators are fully abated in accordance with the Process Guidance notes and provide an alternative for cremation authorities to consider.

Apart from cremation the main form of disposal in the UK, and probably the most ancient, is of course by burial. In recent years we have seen the development of a concept to harness the natural decaying process so that the deceased can be ‘composted’ in a short period of time. We are delighted to have Simon Holden from the Faunus Group who are leaders in the development of this innovative and environmentally friendly process.

Please note this webinar is on Wednesday 12th May British Summer Time.
