The idea was born by a group of Indians from the town of Valsad in Gujarat, India in 1996. After seeing some Scheffler reflectors there, they approached Deepak Gadhia and Wolfgang Scheffler and asked whether this technology could be used to construct a solar crematorium.

In India, most of the dead people are traditionally cremated on an open woodpile. Between 200 and 300 kg of wood are used for this. In towns, the wood is to some extent replaced with electric and gas fired cremation chambers. A solar powered cremation chamber would be another very much welcome alternative.
