As an alternative to burial or cremation one company is offering to freeze your body and then shatter it.
In something similar in concept to the shattering of the T-1000 in Terminator 2 after it had been frozen with liquid nitrogen Swedish Ecological Burial company Promessa are offering to do the same to you on the basis that it constitutes an environmentally friendly alternative to more traditional options.
The body is frozen to around -18C and submerged into liquid nitrogen, allowing the body to become brittle. Once the body is sufficiently brittle, it is shocked with mechanical vibrations, shattering it into a powder.
