Recycling your Scrap Cats

Recycling your Scrap Cats

catalytic converter

The looming greenhouse effect together with the scarcity of raw materials, has made recycling and sustainable development big issues and a real challenge for the coming years.

However, several disposals are still underestimated and dismissed in the recycling process. A case in point is scrap catalytic converters, which contain significant quantities of palladium, platinum and rhodium - a true precious metals bonanza!

Ecotrade is one of Asia’s leaders in the catalytic converters recycling industry. Over the past 10 years, we have built a huge database consisting of over 9,000 catalysts that can be viewed in our online catalogue, with prices adjusted daily based on precious metal market prices. Thanks to our expertise and advanced facilities we have now extended our activities from our Thailand base into Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, Japan, Philippines and Europe.

To help promote the scrap recycling industry we have made a short video that is available on our Youtube channel. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch it below:

If you are looking to sell your used cats you can send or bring them to our warehouse. For larger quantities, we can collect directly from your location. Our precise and efficient cats sampling service allows us to give you an accurate estimation of the precious metal value within your catalyst. Payment then occurs in 48 hours after the receipt, in the payment method of your choice. We are available 24/7 and no order is too small. Our experience and transparency guarantees you a simple, fast and efficient service.
