Crematorium to generate electricity
A crematorium in the United Kingdom is installing turbines that will convert waste heat from corpses into electricity. The combustion of each corpse will produce as much as 150 kilowatt hours of juice – enough to power 1,500 televisions for an hour. The facility in Durham plans to sell the electricity to local power companies. The owner of the company said that the process makes cremation much greener.
