Refining Platinum from Catalytic Converters
I have about 50 catalytic converters come in per month. I also have bare copper wire and copper tubing some with and some without solder joints. Are these items worth anything? – From Dave in Kansas City, Missouri
We can recover platinum and palladium metals from catalytic converters. However, refining this material is not only difficult, but very time and energy consuming. As such, we do not buy whole catalytic converters but rather the pellets and honeycombs from units that have been “de-canned.”
Call or email for a custom quote if you have greater than 100 lbs of “de-canned” catalytic converter material.
For less than 100 lbs of pellets or honeycombs we pay the following prices:
- For loose pellets from non-diesel engines we pay $3.00 per pound.
- For honeycomb material from non-diesel engines we pay $8.00 per pound.
- For loose pellets from diesel engines we pay $3.00 per pound.
- For honeycomb material from diesel engines we pay $3.00 per pound.
