We are sending a delegation to attend a symposium on Bio-Cremation in Rochester, MN September 19, 2018 to research more on this technology.  We will be sitting down with a legislation expert to draft what we feel the regulations around Bio-Cremation should look like for BC.  We hope to bring this recommendation forward in a formal way soon after in the hopes that the stakeholders will reconvene and discuss the draft.

We will provide further updates as we move through this process.
