Recycling of catalytic converters
25 December 2012

Many enterprises often face the problem of accumulation of nickel wastes. These wastes include various concentrates, pastes, sludges and catalytic converters. In order to eliminate these wastes, they must be processed properly. Creating waste-free catalytic converters and their proper recycling once they reach the end of their services lives, is one of the major challenges of our times. After all, unrecycled catalytic converters are a serious source of environmental pollution. Therefore, one of the services of our firm is the recycling of old catalytic converters at the end of their service lives.

The catalytic converter is a compulsory element of a vehicle's exhaust system. It is a mechanism designed to reduce the emissions of the harmful substances in exhaust gases. These may include carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, butane or brown gas.

Catalytic converters also contain many valuable materials, such as: silver, gold, platinum, palladium, rhodium and other metals of high quality. These components can be extracted when catalytic converters are properly recycled. These devices include the isomerization , hydrogenation and reforming catalytic converters, as well as others. It also happens that after recycling of some catalytic converters, aluminum oxide can be extracted from them, which is the basis for many types of electric terminals.

If you have decided to send a catalytic converter for recycling, you should check to see whether its surface is covered in asbestos, that they humidity level of the ceramic did not exceed the allowable, that the converter was not exposed to any chemical treatments and, most importantly, that it is not damaged. It is also important to prepare a converter for recycling, that is, by regeneration (burning coal). Using this procedure, the recycling process will achieve the maximum effect. In addition, you will need to certify and analyze the devices to be used for compliance with rules and regulations on the use of old catalytic converters.

Use our service and we will help you to make use of your old catalytic converters.
