New Alternative to Family Cemetery Plot: Freeze Dried Remains

I'm always coming across weird news.. this from Weird Asian News.

There’s a new controversial method of freeze drying your loved ones’ remains. The process called the promession technique was invented by Swedish biologist Susanne Wiigh-Masa  and presented at a recent Asian funeral expo. The process includes super freezing the deceased body with liquid nitrogen and then vigorously shaking until it becomes dust. “The body falls apart when it’s really cold and that was something that I felt was appealing and clean,” said the creator.

The new method of interment will soon launch in Sweden and South Korea. It it also expected to attract those in densely populated urban areas, especially those countries with full cemeteries.

Do you have any plans?

More weirdness.Although those urns look very decorative. Depending on the size I could see them as a garden decoration.
