About Catalytic Converters
With millions of cars on the road at any given time, in countless cities throughout the world, air pollution is obviously a major environmental issue. To help combat this, governmental organizations have enacted laws that have forced automobile manufacturers to take steps to reduce the emission caused by their product. What they came up with was an ingenious device called a “catalytic converter”. A catalytic converter uses a catalyst consisting of Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium to help remove the Carbon Monoxide, Hydrocarbons and Nitrogen Oxides that pollute our atmosphere.
These metals have an extremely high market value which makes a lot of catalytic converters worth a fair bit of money in the scrap industry.

Keeping it out of the landfill

By recycling your catalytic converter, you limit the need to mine platinum and other precious metals. This is a big win for the environment. Mining anything has negative effects on the earth, but precious metal extraction is particularly hard on the planet.
