The History of Pet Water Cremation

Pet Water Cremation, by Aquamation, is a process that is known scientifically as Alkaline Hydrolysis. Alkaline Hydrolysis was originally granted a patent in the United States in 1888.

Alkaline Hydrolysis uses the combination of flowing water and alkalinity to accelerate the natural course of decomposition.

In recent years, Alkaline Hydrolysis has become mainstream as Pet Water Cremation, and has become very sought after in the United States and Canada for it's excellent environmentally friendly advantages.

Pet Water Cremation is being marketed by a growing number of providers throughout these countries.

Members of the general public, as well as Veterinarians and Farming Professionals are using this service.

Eco-Friendly Pet Cremations is leading the introduction of Pet Water Cremation in Australia. We are a Melbourne based business.

Pet Water Cremation uses less than 10% of the electricity of traditional fire Pet Cremation, and produces no pollution. The price of a Pet Water Cremation is usually equivalent to a traditional fire pet cremation, but without the environmental cost.

Pet Water Cremation is a proudly Australian innovation, and has been developed by Mr John Humphries, the CEO of Aquamation International, a company that has it's headquarters in Melbourne.

Mr Humphries has adapted high pressure Alkaline Hydrolysis units for humans to a low pressure model, so that these can be more easily installed and used. He has also redesigned a version of the low pressure model for the use with pets.

Aquamation International is recognised worldwide as an innovator in Alkaline Hydrolysis equipment. The company's work has been successful in the prestigious Australian Technologies Competition, where Aquamation International was a finalist in 2015.

Mr Humphries has been featured discussing his work in articles in celebrated publications including Time Magazine, New Scientist, The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald.
