Catalytic Converter Recycling Victoria Australia



What Is A Catalytic Converter?

Catalytic converters are part of the exhaust system in modern vehicles that help to reduce the negative environmental effect of cars. The set of catalysts convert dangerous gases produced by cars into less harmful substances.

For example, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons (which produce smog) are converted into carbon dioxide and water. Precious metals, i.e. platinum, are used within catalytic converters and encourage reactions when the exhaust fumes flow by.

Catalytic converters should last the lifetime of the car; however, they may need replacing earlier if the car is backfiring often. Replacements can be expensive due to their metallic makeup.

Catalytic converters contain a range of precious metals such as copper, nickel, cerium, iron and manganese. But most importantly, catalytic converters contain rhodium, platinum and palladium. These three metals are especially valued and used for jewellery, electronics and industrial purposes. So It’s beneficial to recycle catalytic converters.

Scrap Catalytic Converter Recycling

At Super Metal Recycling, we do catalytic converter recycling and try to divert as much waste from landfill as possible. Therefore, we believe recycling should always be done where possible, and catalytic converters are no exception, however they do present additional benefits.

Firstly, mining metal ore and fabricating the metals can be a labour and energy-intensive process, requiring extensive mining, costly processes and harmful chemical treatments. For example, platinum ore has to be extracted from deep tunnels, requiring lots of digging energy, and a large amount of ore is needed for a significant amount of end-product platinum (1 ton of ore for 1 ounce of platinum). Once extracted, platinum ore must be treated with chemicals to achieve the metal. Not only is this polluting the environment, but also negative for the mineworkers who are commonly underpaid and forced to work in harsh conditions.

Catalytic Converter Scrap Price

Catalytic converters have economic value as they contain precious metals. This is the main reason why they are sold as the most expensive scrap. Because it contains rhodium, palladium and platinum, which are among the most precious metals. They can be converted into more cash when Pt, Pd, Rh are recovered from the scrap catalytic converter. catalytic converter scrap price change from time to time based on the metals prices.
