World's first human composting facility

Dec 17, 2019 16:50 IST

The world's first human composting facility will start its operations in Seattle by 2021. At Recompose, the aim is to convert human remains into soil. Earlier this year, Washington passed a bill that allows human composting and the law will go into effect in May 2020. The facility uses recomposition vessels that allow bacteria to act and the process takes around 30 days. The family of the deceased can take the soil to use in their gardens. Conservation of the environment is one massive benefit of the process, says the company.
