The body has to be returned to the Earth intact where possible , in most countries bodies are placed in coffins in Israel the body is bound in a shroud and placed on the earth the Muslims of course follow our tradition 

The exception to the above are Soldiers killed in action their remains whatever they maybe will be in coffins

There are of course Religious requirements but they become complicated so the above covers more or less the reasons

That was really interesting.

It's certainly not like everyone has their own plot and coffin.

This new system seems to keep the traditions, while being more practical with the space requirements.

Outside of Israel , Jews are buried according to local laws which generally require coffins , in Israel there are no coffins other than for Soldiers or those involved in such things as suicide bombings in those cases the Rabbis will send teams to collect as much of the person as is humanly possible (not my cup of tea but there you go) on the battle field the same applies
