95% of all catalytic converters worldwide work with ceramic carriers. Large capacities are required to recycle them.
More than 8,700 m2 of space are available at Duesmann & Hensel Recycling in Aschaffenburg, Germany. Here we operate numerous cat decanning stations in which the steel scrap is separated from the elements containing precious metals. Afterwards, four large selection stations ensure the rapid and clean processing of the materials. The material is homogenized during processing. The emerging dust is sucked up during the entire work process, returned to the material and also recycled. Our internal setup provides enough capacity to process many thousand vehicle catalytic converters with ceramic monoliths every day.
The effective extraction of platinum, palladium and rhodium is the result of this complex recycling process. We constantly optimize this process with targeted investments, strong partners and creative ideas. Convince yourself and take one of our virtual tours.
