What’s in a Catalytic Converter? Find Out Fast by Watching this Video

If you ask most people how a catalytic converter works, they’ll say, “Dirty exhaust from your car’s engine goes in one side and cleaner exhaust goes out the other side. The exhaust gases then go through the muffler and leave the car via the exhaust pipe.”

That’s pretty accurate, but it lacks some of the subtler information about what really happens in your car’s catalytic converter. It also doesn’t explain what the recyclable precious metals that catalytic converters contain are, or where you can find them.

Well, There’s Nothing Like a Video

We recently found a this informative 10-minute video that shows a very smart young guy who explains how catalytic converters work. Better yet, he pulls one apart and shows you the platinum, palladium and rhodium that are inside.


Do You Have Catalytic Converters to Recycle?

The precious metals that you see in the video are worth real money, so here’s some advice for you on becoming a successful recycler of catalytic converters…

  • First, start collecting used catalytic converters. You can buy them from muffler shops, repair shops, junkyards and other sources. When you approach these businesses and offer to buy their units, chances are you will hear, “We already have a company that comes and picks them up.” Don’t be discouraged. If you can pay a little more for the converters than those companies pay, you should be able to strike a deal.
  • Second, call us at 800-426-2344 when you have 500 or more catalytic converters to recycle. We’re here to recycle them for you and pay you top dollar for the precious metals they contain. When you call, mention this blog post and ask about free or discounted shipping costs when you send your converters to us for processing.

Why a Catalytic Converter Recycling Business Can Be a Great Business for You

There are many reasons. You can start collecting converters in your spare time. You can store them safely and inexpensively in a garage or even outdoors under a tarp if you have a large yard. (Unlike other car parts, catalytic converters do not leak oil, so they can be safely stored without causing environmental damage.) If those options don’t work for you, you can store them safely in a rented self-storage facility.

Then there’s the fact that converting those units into cash is easy and straightforward. You don’t need to go hunting for a buyer for them or end up with unsold units on your hands. You’ll call us, send your converters to us, and we’ll send you a check. That’s easy. Why not eliminate the middle man and start a profitable automotive business of your own by recycling catalytic converters?
