That Promession is a solution to a problem that the funeral industry is experiencing all around the world, that is something we have known a long time, as we have received interest from 99 countries around the world so far. Over the past two years we have also signed up Promessa Representatives in the following continents; Europe, North America and South America, but we are now very glad to announce that our first Representative from the African continent have joined our growing family of Promessa Representative.
Eternal Funeral Services (www.eternalfuneral.co.za), the funeral branch of the prominent and reputable Living Word Ministry Trust (www.lewendewoord.co.za), has become our most recent Representative and last week we provided them with Promessa Masterclass at their Head Quarter in Pretoria, South Africa.
“We have for a very long time received a significant interest from South Africa regarding our appealing and environmentally friendly burial, promession and our improved clean cremation. The interest has come from ministries, government, for-profit and not-for-profit organizations and individuals, who just want to know if promession is available in their country” says Susanne Wiigh-Mäsak, CEO and founder of Promessa. “Finding the right partner that truly understands the biology in the promession solution, and also understands that education of and information to the market is the foundation on which we can successfully launch promession, has been challenging, but Eternal Funeral Services, with Mr. Nevil Norden and Mr. Ben van der Merwe leading their effort, has checked off all the boxes and we look forward to work with them in the important South African market”
“We notice that people want more environmentally friendly solutions and the same do I. And compared to the other alternatives promession is also a more appealing option in a lot of peoples mind, making the sometime tough choice easier” says Nevil Norden, Senior Pastor and Founding Member of Living Word Ministries.
Ben van der Merwe, their Head of Division for Eternal Funeral Services continues – “We really look forward to working closely with Promessa in South Africa and to develop and start following a plan for how we can educate the market, find the right partners and get the infrastructure in place in South Africa, so that we can launch the green method promession in 1-3 years, benefiting our air, water and soil, and all the people in South Africa.”
Living Word Ministry Trust has a total of 31 branches in the world with 30 of these to be located in South Africa.
Promession is an environmentally friendly method developed to take care of human remains after death. The concept focuses on letting nature’s preferred method of aerobic decomposition take place, to really support new life in the soil in a positive way. This avoids the creation of methane gas and pollution of groundwater, which are environmental problems with traditional burials. For those who prefer ashes and cremation, Promessa has also developed a clean cremation method, which releases significantly less pollutants, like furans and NOx. Promessa can also guarantee Zero Mercury and Zero Dioxin release, which is impossible with the existing methods of today. And it doesn’t need any energy, which is appreciated.
Promessa is a Swedish company, which has developed and offers the environmentally friendly and ecological funeral concept of promession®. Promession solves the pressing issues in the death care industry of unsustainable land usage and pollution of our vital resources; soil, water and air. Private persons around the world find that Promessa is offering important and appealing solutions to a topic that concerns every one of us.
