Converters (and related automotive scrap parts)

We purchase all types of converters - ceramics and foils. We offer more than 50 types of converters. If your converter does not fit one of our many categories, we will sample it through our research and expertise to provide you the best price available.

In addition to converters, Federal Autocat specializes diesel particulate filters form trucks and buses, as well an ceramic and metallic monolith from industrial and manufacturing emission control devices. For more information on diesel particulate filters and emission control devices please visit our sister company, Recycalytics to learn more.

How are we able to the provide the most “Cash” to you? One word: GRADING.

Beginning in January 2004, Federal Autocat introduced a new grading program to give our customers maximum value for the precious metal content in this category of converters! Federal Autocat Recycling employs a proprietary (patent pending) process that recovers the full value of Platinum group metals from "metal substrate" or "foil" converters.

We will provide our customers with a comprehensive library of converter sizes and types that will enable accurate grading and profitable purchasing of converters in this category. Our proprietary recovery process is clean, efficient and friendly to the environment. A new category means a new profit stream for our customers!

In addition to grading, we outperform the competition by:
  • Providing pricing that reflects accurate up-to-the-minute market prices for the platinum, palladium and rhodium contained in each converter.
  • Being the "top of the food chain" recyclers. We actually process the material. We do not resell your converters.
  • Developing long term and profitable relationships with our customers.

Single Trade-Ins

Did you know that platinum mining and production entails extreme energies and massive costs? Extraction, concentration and refining of the metal require quite complex processes that may take up to six months. It is estimated that in order to produce a single ounce of platinum, a volume of 7 to 12 tons of ore must be processed. So, in the end, every recycled catalytic converter counts.

Our trade-in program lets you do your part and get paid for it!

Federal Autocat through its sister company Eastern Catalytic will send you a check for your spent catalytic converter upon the purchase of a new one from Eastern. Upon receipt of your new catalytic converter, enclose the old one into the same packing box with the prepaid postage label we provide. Upon delivery to Eastern, we will grade your returned unit and send you a check in four to six weeks. Soon thereafter we process and refine its PGM and apply them to new converters!

For pricing and trade-in questions, please contact Manoj Sathananthan at 800.786.5051, ext 110.
