A Bangor company is working to solve a very grave problem in Northern Ireland’s cemeteries.
Supported by Queen’s University scientists, Greenacre Innovations are working to reduce dangerous pollution in graveyards.
The pollution is caused largely by embalming fluids, including formaldehyde which is rated as a class one carcinogenic toxin.
Now the company has developed a ‘cushion’ which can be placed in the bottom of the coffin or the grave to neutralise the toxins before they enter the groundwater.
