If you're dead and worried about the carbon emissions created from your cremation, relax. The Swedish town of Halmstad has a solution. After an environmental review showed that Halmstad's crematorium was pumping too much smoke into the air, the facility's director decided to re-use heat from the cremations to warm up the crematorium's buildings. …
Locals in the town of 55,000 approve of the crematorium's system, so it should be up and running soon. If the plan is successful, the crematorium eventually wants to pipe heat from its facilities to area homes.
And while some may protest Halmstad’s plan on moral grounds, I’m sure that the potential monetary savings for the town will ultimately keep them quiet.
