In Western countries cremation takes place in a crematory retort that is housed within a crematorium. A cremator is an industrial furnace that is able to generate temperatures of 870–980 °C (1,600–1,800 °F) to ensure disintegration of the corpse. A crematorium may be part of a funeral home or may be an independent facility or a service offered by a cemetery.Some states require a body be placed in "rigid containers (cardboard boxes) or caskets for cremation.
Note: A single cremation in a conventional crematory uses about as much fossil fuel as driving a car 4800 miles .
