Hello! I would like to ask the following questions for my thesis proposal. Rest assured; all data gathered will be used for academic purposes only.

I requested an interview regarding cemeteries and according to DENR-EMB, proposals such as aquamation would be needing an extensive review from DOST.

1.) Do you think it's time for our country to introduce a new body disposal such as aquamation (alkaline hydrolysis)?

2.) Do think this technology is safe for our environment and public health? 

3.) Would there be any design guidelines for this kind of technology?
