Gallery: Freezing Your Corpse Terminator Style in Liquid Nitrogen is a ...

 

As if dying wasn’t bad enough, it now turns out that funerals are bad for the environment. Whether you’re being conventionally buried or cremated, you’re still impacting on the world around you. However  a Swedish company called Promessa Organic claims to have the greenest way to dispose of bodies – using liquid nitrogen (yes, like how the T-1000 dies at the end of Terminator 2: Judgement Day).

    Good idea why don’t we outlaw creamation?

    fully agree with Greenisstupid comment

    What you seem to not account for is the fact that Liquid nitrogen is not found in nature and therefore needs to be created. Usually, a carbon-based energy is used to cool N2 down to a liquid. Next the vacuum needed takes energy too. If a real analysis was done, I imagine it’ll take more resources to do this than traditional methods use.

    Correct, the T-1000 was terminated in a vat of molten steel, along with the T-2…again. Ya know, burying people in the Marianas Trench might be a good idea. The bodies would be recycle by the tube worms and hag worms.

    Wait, wait, wait…wasn’t the T-1000 terminated in a vat of molten steel? Where does officer John Spartan fit into all of this freezing business? Could we all just be buried in the Marianas Trench with Megatron? I’m getting my movies a little tossed here…

    That is not how the T-1000 dies at the end of Terminator 2, it was a wickedly cool scene though.

    Question: How “green” is the process of making liquid nitrogen?

  8. ejmg1000 March 8, 2011 at 10:16 am

    what about all the energy needed to freeze the nitrogen into a liquid?

    That’s the way I want to be disposed of. The owner actually responded to a comment I made over Facebook because I tagged Promessa.

    While probably less socially acceptable, “sky burials” are perhaps the most environmentally friendly funerals.
