The Process

The Cryomation fully automated process involves immersing a body in Liquid Nitrogen down to a temperate of -196 degrees at which point it becomes extremely brittle. The brittle body is Cryolated into small particles allowing for the removal of any surgical implants and other foreign material.

The water is removed by freeze drying, the remains are sterilised and put into a bio-degradable container, ready for burial in a much smaller space than traditional burial.

Those remains breakdown to nothing within 12 months, freeing up space for further burials.
