UK's Durham Crematorium May Sell Body Heat To Great Britain's National Grid

Published by in English ·
Tags: Durhamcrematorium

Bringing new meaning to the term "body heat," a UK crematorium is hoping to make some extra cash by selling energy produced during the cremation process.

If all goes as planned, the Durham Crematorium will install turbines in two of its burners and sell the excess energy to Great Britain's National Grid, The Telegraph reports.

A third burner will continue to warm the site's chapel and offices.

Engineers estimate that each turbine can generate 250 kilowatt-hours, enough electricity to power 1,500 televisions, according to The Daily Mail.

While the proposition may seem a bit morbid, the crematorium insists that most of the energy will come from gas used during the cremation process, with a negligible amount coming from the actual bodies. In addition, the innovations will help address mercury emissions escaping into the atmosphere, a common problem in UK crematoria.

"Apart from it being common sense for us to try to conserve energy, it also enables us to keep the fees down," crematorium superintendent and registrar Alan Jose said, according to The Northern Echo.

"If there is genuine spare capacity to generate electricity then we are certainly interested in investigating that. And if it was thought to be acceptable in the eyes of the public we would almost certainly pursue that," Jose added.

Una municipalizzata per un business da 46 milioni di euro Soldi in arrivo a pioggia dalle cremazioni. A Bologna le incinerazioni sono diventate un business da 46 milioni di euro, visto il boom dei defunti cremati: circa 4 mila sugli 11 mila annuali nell'intera provincia del capoluogo emiliano. Per questo la città ha deciso di dotarsi di un adeguato servizio, affiancandolo al progetto per la restaurazione del cimitero principale di Bologna della Certosa; una struttura in decadenza che non in grado di soddisfare le richieste di incinerazione (neppure 1.000 quelle eseguite in un anno) che costringe i cittadini a trasferte a Ravenna, Brescia o Mantova.

HEAT generated by a North- East crematorium could be fed back into the National Grid to provide electricity. Durham Crematorium is investigating the possibility of installing turbines in two of its new furnaces to use the heat generated from cremations to produce electricity, and use the third to heat its chapel and offices. It is thought the turbines would generate sufficient electricity to power 1,500 television sets.
