Frequently Asked Questions
Scrappie is here to help you whether you're a scrap dealer, tradesperson, or a member of the public with scrap catalytic converetrs for sale. Here are answers to the most popular questions about scrap cats.
How much are scrap catalytic converters worth?
In short, genuine scrap catalytic converter prices usually range from £10 -£400 each. And anywhere in between. A handful may exceed the £500+ value at certain times. However, those units are very rare.
Refiners test each type of catalytic converter to determine the precious metal content. Based on those findings, they can determine the value of each CAT based on the precious metal prices that day. Cat converter buyers will usually get prices from their own digital database or catalogues.
Prices could fluctuate throughout the day.
You’ll sometimes be paid more if you deliver your cats. You could receive a higher rate if you have larger quantities to recycle.
What are aftermarket catalytic converters?
Aftermarket catalytic converters (aka Euro Cats), are non OEM, non original units. Aftermarkets are manufactured by third parties and are used to replace your original units.
Although purchasing these as new is costly, their scrap value is very low averaging £2 – £8 each.
Why are catalytic converters valuable?
Catalytic converters contain precious metals like platinum, palladium, and rhodium as catalysts. These metals have a high market value, and recycling companies can extract and refine them for various industrial applications, including electronics and jewellery.
Precious metals used in catalytic converters are relatively scarce and finite resources. As demand for these metals grows, recycling becomes an essential source, making catalytic converters valuable as a metal resource.
How are catalytic converters recycled?
Firstly, catalytic converters are cut open, breaking and releasing the biscuit inside. The contents are then milled into an extremely fine powder or dust.
This dust is eventually refined to separate the platinum, palladium or rhodium. These are then melted into bars for re-use.
Who can sell catalytic converters?
Everyone can sell their catalytic converters. If you have an old cat & feel like cashing in, we’ll try and get you the best rates.
Mechanics and accident repair garages often acquire damaged catalytic converters which they sell. Mobile scrap collectors and scrap dealers can also use Scrppie to locate the best rates for re-sale. Car breakers can benefit significantly because of the quantities of catalytic converters they produce.
What do I need to sell my catalytic converters?
If you are a member of the public, dealers require copies of the following:
VEHICLE V5 LOG BOOK
Not legally required, but some buyers may need proof the catalytic converter has come from your vehicle.
Driving Licence or Passport & recent utility bill
Account Number & Sort Code
Do buyers collect?
If you have a one cheap catalyst, some buyers won’t collect due to the cost of fuel, time & manpower involved.
However buyers may still offer you a price taking these factors into account. Another way would be to deliver your catalytic converters to a licenced site. You could be paid a higher rate too.
But if collection is required, we do have members who can help you too.
Find Codes & Photograph Units
Catalytic converter buyers need clear photos & code numbers to successfully price your units. Make sure you have these available to send, if possible. If not, contact our dealers for help.
Most catalytic converters can be identified by the part number. Sometimes, catalytic converters have lots of numbers printed on them. Sometimes they are so corroded that they’re not visible. And sometimes, they have no codes at all.
Check Inside Your Catalytic Converter
If possible, check inside your catalytic converter. Ensure the cores are not damaged or burnt out. There are 3 varieties. What’s yours? Hover over images below to find out more.
