Catalytic converters are emission control devices found in automobiles, motorcycles, electrical generators, mining equipment and other exhaust systems. You might be surprised to learn that a scrap catalytic converter can be quite valuable given that they contain a mix of precious metals such as platinum and palladium. For this reason, it can be worthwhile to sell scrap catalytic converter devices rather than toss them out. Fortunately, the team at Best Way Scrap Metal can accept and provide money for catalytic converter devices based on current market values.
Why Recycle Catalytic Converters?
There are several major reasons why you should consider catalyst recycling. First and foremost, mining the precious metals used to build these devices has a negative impact on the environment. Digging the tunnels to access platinum ore is an energy-intensive and polluting process. The miners themselves are also poorly paid and work in dangerous conditions. By recycling your catalytic converter in Melbourne, you can limit the need to mine platinum and other metals.
Secondly, small catalysts can contain between one and two grams of precious metals, while larger devices can contain as much as 12 to 15 grams. These can be recovered during the recycling process, which means that you can be generously compensated.
