Pioneering greener funerals

Making a difference for the environment

Worthing Crematorium is proud to be part of a world-first trial using green hydrogen for cremations. This innovative project, called HyCrem, aims to significantly reduce our carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner environment.

How it works

During a four-week trial period (20th May to 14th June 2024), one of our cremators will be converted to run on 100% green hydrogen, a clean-burning fuel produced without carbon emissions. We'll be closely monitoring air quality and performance throughout the trial.

Benefits for our community

By finding cleaner alternatives to natural gas, we can significantly reduce our environmental impact. This project aligns with the council's goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

Strong partnerships

We're collaborating with leading organisations like FT Pipeline Systems, Net Zero Associates, the University of Brighton and DFW Europe to make this project a success.

What's next?

Following the trial, we'll carefully evaluate the results to determine if green hydrogen is a viable long-term option for the crematorium.

Stay informed

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we participate in this important trial. We'll keep you updated on our progress.
