How to Recycle a Catalytic Convertor

SEATTLE (Waste Advantage): As it is known, the harm of cars, which make our lives easier, to people and nature is undeniable. Gases from exhausts cause serious damage to both human health and the environment. It causes air pollution. Catalytic converters have been used for approximately 45 years to largely block these gases released into the atmosphere.

In catalytic converters connected to the exhaust outlet pipe of cars, the platinum group metals convert carbon monoxide gas (CO), hydrocarbons (HC) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) released into the air into less harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapor. Catalytic converters contain platinum, palladium and rhodium precious metals from platinum group metals as catalysts.

It provides the breakdown of platinum and palladium hydrocarbons into water vapor and carbon dioxide. Rhodium converts nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide into nitrogen and carbon dioxide.
