Which is better? Homasote or cremation?

By Jennifer StearnsCBS News – SEATTLE – A $3,000 Homasotes fiberboard coffin is a step up from a burial container, but it’s also more expensive.

The $3.9 million Burial Container Corporation is developing the coffin for cremation.

The Burial Chamber is one of three companies in the U.S. making funeral and cremation containers.

They are based in the Houston, Texas, area and include Homasites, a fiberglass-and-steel container made by Homasotec, and Burial Furniture, a carbon fiber-and steel container manufactured by Burial Supply Company.

“This is a much more cost effective way to handle cremation than a traditional container, which can be costly and labor intensive,” said Tom Vincenzi, CEO of Burial and Burying Supply Company in a statement.

Vincenzis said Burial’s new container is much smaller, lighter and more durable than the traditional container.

The new container will cost $1,995 and be built on a 3.5-foot wide bed of fiberglass.

It has a capacity of 500 cubic inches.

The coffin is not a burial device, but Vincensi said the company will continue to offer other types of containers to the burial and crematory industry.

The company said it is partnering with a local funeral home to build a new container.

Burial will offer a wide variety of options for the funeral industry, including a custom-built funeral home container and a flatbed funeral trailer.

Burying and Burthening is a joint venture between the company and the city of Spokane, Washington.

The funeral industry has become a hotbed of innovation, especially for funeral homes.

In 2013, more than 10,000 people in the funeral business were laid to rest in the state of Washington.

A recent survey by the Association of Burying Industries found that over 80 percent of funeral homes in the United States had at least one new technology in use.

That number has increased each year.

“We see it as a real opportunity to bring innovation to the funeral home,” said Michael Kovalic, a partner at Kovalics Burial, Inc., in a phone interview with CBS News.

He said that with the introduction of the new Burial chamber, Burial is taking the funeral community by storm.

“The burials will be going to a new standard of comfort,” he said.

The cremation market is growing quickly, with an estimated 4 million to 5 million people in Washington and around the country expected to go to a funeral home or crematory in the next five years, according to the association.

It is expected to be the largest single industry in the nation by 2020, accounting for 16 percent of the $2.6 trillion funeral business.

Burials are also being seen as a way to offer a better funeral experience for the family.

In January, the National Association of Funeral Directors, which represents funeral homes, told CBS News that the rise in funerals was an opportunity to innovate and improve care.

“When you look at a funeral, it is more about the individual.

The family is more important than the deceased,” said Jim Smith, the association’s president.

The association also has partnered with the funeral homes of Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York City and Dallas to help them prepare for the new industry.

“There’s a lot of new technologies, a lot more automation and there’s a much greater focus on making sure that the family is represented,” Smith said.

It may be time to embrace a new, better funeral home.

A new, cheaper option?

The coffin company is using a cheaper alternative to the traditional burial container.

“A lot of funeral houses are moving to the flatbed or the flat bed trailer model,” Vincena said.

“They don’t have to deal with the complexity of making a custom coffin that is going to fit in with a particular funeral home’s structure.”

The burials industry is a hot bed of innovation.

In the last two years, there has been an estimated $9 billion in new revenue for funeral companies.

Burrowing services alone grew nearly 17 percent.

In 2012, the U
