MOST TRUSTED PARTNER IN CATALYTIC CONVERTER RECYCLING
WHAT IS A CATALYTIC CONVERTER?
Inside every car is a catalytic converter, containing a monolith with precious metals such as Palladium, Platinum and Rhodium embedded in the substrate. The purpose of this catalytic converter is to reduce C02 emissions by 70 to 80 percent, which is why all cars around the world are required to have one. As the metals that go into these components are rare and finite resources, it is important to recycle them when the car comes to the end of its life.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF CATALYTIC CONVERTERS
CERAMIC CATALYTIC CONVERTERS
The analysis for ceramic catalytic converters can be done very accurately, opposite to metallic catalytic converter. As a result, prices for ceramic catalytic converters tends to be higher.
METALLIC CATALYTIC CONVERTERS
Metallic catalytic converters have a spiral motion inside. They cannot be crushed as ceramic catalytic converters and they have a fixed price.
HALF CUT AND SOLID METALLIC CONVERTERS
If only the sides of the metallic catalytic converter are cut, it is then called a half cut metallic catalytic converter. If you take it out, you have what is called a solid metallic catalytic converter.
