This fascinating article in The Conversation describes how friendly different burial options are for the environment. The key indicator is apparently how long it takes a body to skeletonise, and what happens to the decomposed remains during that process. Pollutant materials from coffin coatings and ornaments are also taken into account. An aerated tomb comes out on top as the best option for a fast and clean skeletonising process, as well recycling options for the tomb itself afterwards.
