Catalytic Converters

                              Purchase Process of 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 and adjust the catalytic prices accordingly. This ensures that our buying process is transparent, honest and fair. Our purchase process is the following:

      Step 1

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

      Step 2

      Customer gets paid per KG, based on the results of the analysis and current market prices.
