Key Notes

  • The first technology to solve the smelting stage issues with Diesel Cat Converters
  • Our plant will be able to achieve over 90% metals recovery, with the only green process in the industry.
  • Gain significant market share via strategic, regional plant locations.
  • Filling an unfilled need – less than 30% of catalytic converters are recycled.
  • Our first target region, North America, accounts for 35% of the global market for diesel engines

Issues With Current Recycling Method

  • The only current method to recover Pd & Pt from Cat Converters is Smelting
  • Most of the North American Cat Converter smelting is done overseas: Europe, Africa and Asia, resulting in significant shipping costs
  • Turn around time from smelters to the recyclers is over 180 days, with often biased reporting on metal recoveries in favor of the smelter
  • Not only do smelters have limited capabilities, they emit excessive CO2and toxic pollution

Featured Process: Diesel Catalytic Converter Recycling

80% of the world’s supply of palladium (Pd) and 50% of the world’s supply of platinum (Pt) are used in catalytic converters annually.

a diesel catalytic converter wave is coming – as DPF sales began in 2006 and the average recycle age of units is 10+ years

Facts About Diesel Catalytic Converters

Diesel Catalytic Converters, represent a massive untapped market; and a serious and growing problem for the recycling industry
  • Most smelters and refiners now refuse to accept diesel cat feedstock due to the trapped carbon exploding and damage to the furnace.
  • Most smelters and refiners now refuse to accept diesel cat
    feedstock due to the trapped carbon exploding and damage to
    the furnace.
  • Diesel cats contain 2 – 5 times more Pd & Pt than gasoline cats
  • Most smelters and refiners now refuse to accept diesel cat feedstock due to the trapped carbon exploding and damage to the furnace.
