Decarbonising Worthing Crematorium

Tackling emissions across the council estate is key to Worthing Borough Council’s decarbonisation plan. Worthing Crematorium has the largest carbon footprint of any council site, so the council is working with Netherlands based DFW Europe who are trialling hydrogen fuelled crematoria which will drastically reduce emissions from crematoria. Worthing Crematorium is the first UK site in line for testing, which will happen in early 2024. The trial will fuel one of three cremators with green hydrogen and, if successful, hydrogen-based cremators will be rolled out on a wider scale.
