After studying the process for her master's thesis,
Katrina Spade ran a pilot project decomposing six human bodies last year at Washington State University. Converting the bodies to soil took between four and seven weeks, Spade said.
From her bio on her company website -

Should she speak at the National Conference, because this could become a land use issue as compared to cremation.
