      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.

      TRANSPARENT BUYING PROCESS    

      STEP 1

      Sample of catalytic converter is inspected with XRF analyser. Only ceramic catalytic converters can be crushed and sampled. Metallic catalytic converters have fixed prices.
       

      STEP 2

      Customer get paid per KG based on the results of the analysis and current international metal market prices. Instant cash or EFT payments.

      PRICING OF SCRAP CATALYTIC CONVERTERS

      Most catalytic converters contain small amounts of precious metals, such as Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium. We monitor the market prices for these precious metals daily and calculate the catalytic converter prices accordingly.


      It is impossible to tell the exact price before the sample of scarp catalytic converter is inspected with XRF analyser. 


      DIFFERENT TYPES OF CATALYTIC CONVERTERS

      Odoo - Sample 1 for three columns

      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 & Solid Metallic Catalytic 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.
