Undertakers Plan To Use Excess Energy From Crematorium To Heat Headquarters

Posted: Updated:

VIENNA — Undertakers in the Austrian capital say they're planning to use a crematorium to help heat their new headquarters.

Bestattung Wien spokesman Juergen Sild says cremation requires generating very high temperatures and that the idea, in times of environmental awareness, is to put the excess energy created to good use instead of letting it go to waste.

Sild added Friday that the headquarters, to be situated next to the crematorium and due to be completed next year, would also be warmed with gas.
