  • 7. Lions Club of KalungaThe notable features of improvised Traditional Crematorium are:1. The location of the crematorium has been so selected that in course of disposal of mortal remains, river water is not polluted.2. The improved pyres have been so designed to save at least 40% of firewood required to put the mortal remains into ashes. This comes to around 2 quintals (statistics show that about 5 quintals of wood on an average is consumed for total disposal of mortal remains). Statistics further show that on a average, at Rourkela, 6 bodies are put to flame daily, leading to a saving of 4380 quintals of wood per annum. This comes from 22 nos. of trees (A 50 year old tree yields about 200 quintals of wood on an average). Thus 22 trees per annum are saved from being cut. The process is very quick. This ultimately helps to conserve forest and maintain ecological balance.3. To provide comfort and soothing atmosphere during cremation to the mourners in the hour of their grief.4.
