    A proposed crematorium that could incinerate up to 36,000 bodies a year near Oakland International Airport has been delayed amidst sizable neighborhood opposition.

    The Neptune Society's so-called "mega-crematorium" would burn on Kitty Lane near the airport, according to's In Oakland blog.

    The business was scheduled to open in 2011, but neighbors protested. They alleged that "corpse dust" from the "death factory" would end up on their homes.

    A moratorium on the crematorium, first passed in 2011, was extended for another six months this week, according to reports.
