The experienced salesman will evaluate the catalytic converters using our online Database one by one ensuring the clients are getting a maximum outcome for their material. Once the material is evaluated and the price agreed the client will be paid instantly by a Bank transfer. Every purchase will be followed by Waste Consignment Notes identifying the salesman’s identity, Waste Management, and Carrier license numbers, and other beneficial information making sure the clients sold their material to the fully compliant recycling company.
For the regular clients who supply substantial amounts of catalytic converters, Blancomet offers Toll Refining services under a written contract. Under toll refining basis the material’s value is determined by chemical ICP-OES analysis. All the samples undergo customized preparation prior to ICP-OES, the catalytic converters are de-canned, ceramic monolith honeycomb is ground to a fine powder and mixed ensuring the sample is homogenous. Therefore, we can reliably determine precious metal content.
Since the beginning of Blancomet incorporation, we have analysed and collected all the relevant information about Catalytic Converters. All this data is stored in our Online Catalytic Converters Database and Mobile Application. The database is regularly updated with new items. There are thousands of unique Catalytic Converters which vary in shape, identification numbers, and other species. With the help of our database, it is easy to identify Catalytic Converters and determine their accurate value based on current LME market prices.
Catalytic converter recycling
Catalytic converter recycling is a crucial process that not only helps manage waste but also contributes to the conservation of precious metals and the reduction of harmful emissions. A catalytic converter is a device found in vehicles that contains precious metals like platinum, palladium, and rhodium, which act as catalysts to facilitate chemical reactions that convert harmful pollutants in exhaust gases into less harmful substances. Over time, these catalytic converters can wear out or become damaged, necessitating their replacement and recycling.
The process of recycling catalytic converters involves extracting the valuable precious metals from the spent converters. The converters are dismantled, and the catalyst material is carefully recovered using specialized techniques. This recycling not only helps recover valuable metals but also ensures that potentially harmful substances in the converters are properly managed and do not end up in landfills or the environment.
Catalytic converters should be recycled when they are no longer functioning effectively or when they need replacement due to damage. Additionally, as these devices contain valuable precious metals, recycling them helps meet the demand for these materials without relying solely on mining and extraction, which can have environmental consequences.
Catalytic converter scrap price
Catalytic converter scrap price depends on various factors, including the current market prices of precious metals like platinum, palladium, and rhodium. These prices can fluctuate based on factors such as supply and demand, economic conditions, and geopolitical events. The type of vehicle, the age of the catalytic converter, and the specific metals used in its construction also influence its scrap value.
