Catalytic Converters

Catalytic Converters are found in vehicle exhaust systems, and perform the task of converting polluting exhaust emissions in to less harmful and polluting emissions.

Catalytic converters are recycled because they contain three very valuable metals that act as catalysts - platinum, palladium and rhodium. These catalysts help convert carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons into carbon dioxide and water, nitrogen oxide back to nitrogen and oxygen.

Eco Logic Solutions are specialist catalytic converter recyclers with the equipment and experience to achieve the best price on any, size model or type of catalytic converter.

More information about Catalytic Converters

Catalytic Converters (sometimes referred to as 'cats' or 'catcons') were developed in the mid-70's to address the need of stricter regulations being put on reducing the amount of pollutants, or emissions, road vehicles produce.

The catalytic converters job is to convert the harmful pollutants produced by a vehicles' engine and convert them in to less harmful emissions before they leave the exhaust.

A standard catalytic converter consists of a ceramic or honeycomb structure which is coated with a metal catalyst, usually platinum, rhodium and/or palladium. Most modern catalytic converters use a honeycomb structure.

What happens when catalytic converters are recycled?

After a catalytic converter is removed from a vehicle, the outer stainless steel container is split and the honeycomb interior removed. The coating that surrounds the honeycomb (the wash-coat) is extracted leaving the honeycomb centre which is crushed in to small pieces and then ground down to form a fine powder.

The extracted powder then undergoes a chemical process from which the platinum, palladium and rhodium are extracted. These recycled precious metals are sold on for use by manufacturers of new catalytic converters, or commonly in the electrical circuits found in mobile phones, televisions, iPods and computers.

This recycling process must be undertaken at a specialist plant such as Eco Logic Solutions in a controlled, safe environment. Call us today on 01494 786 122 to see how we can help with your catalytic converter recycling, metal recycling and refining needs.
