Audi RS3

The issues of environmental pollution from exhaust fumes became particularly acute in the middle of the last century. With the development of the automobile industry, it became necessary to find a solution to combat harmful exhaust emissions. Catalysts received their first mass production in 1975 and today the Euro standards for catalytic converters have the highest degree of purification for exhaust systems. Every car must be equipped with a catalytic converter coming from the exhaust manifold, and the Audi RS3 has a Euro-6 catalyst. However, as cars have mileage, the catalytic converter also wears out. On average, it is 100-200 thousand kilometers before it fails. After such mileage, the catalyst stops working effectively and even complicates the work of the engine. Therefore, many people simply cut them out and throw them away. But this is not the best approach, because the value of the used catalytic converter is conditioned not only by its performance but also by its contents.

If we look at the contents behind the metal jacket of any catalyst we will mostly see a ceramic core made in the form of honeycomb cells. These very cells are coated with a catalytic layer of elements that serve to enhance redox processes to convert harmful gases into neutral elements such as carbon monoxide and water. These processes go under heavy pressure and temperatures which is why catalysts have a certain lifetime bound to mileage. The catalytic layer is made of precious metals of the Platinum group such as Platinum, Palladium, and Rhodium which is why a used Audi RS3 cat still has value.

Catalytic converter price Audi RS3

There is a misconception about how a car's engine or manufacturer may imply catalytic price as this is far from the truth. Car manufacturers often come to the help of specified catalytic converter manufacturers to fulfill production demands. Thus, such a term as OEM branding does not exist, hence no price influence. Engine power has nothing to do with its converter price, as there could be a variable amount of precious metals contained, which you find out on scrap catalytic converter yards. Or you can approximate the price on AutoCatalystMarket by inserting your catalyst serial number into the search bar on the site.

But if you do not want to set your used catalytic converter for sale yet and find out the exact price of its contains, we explain how the catalytic recycle is being done.

Catalytic converter recycling

If you are interested in a deeper observation of what your scrapped cat contains, you need to perform an XRF spectral analysis that will estimate the percentage of Platinum, Palladium, and Rhodium in a given sample. This is a preceding stage before the refinery that helps to understand the catalytic converter price per kg beforehand. Then it comes to refining, the lab sends a whole batch for plasma furnace machining with leaching and electrolysis treatments. This extracts precious metals and separates them from the raw material, and thus you get a pure value. The last thing to do is to check precious metal exchange for current prices as there is volatility involved. All these complicated measures are not mandatory to sell catalytic converter as you can simply find a Buyer on the AutoCatalystMarket website which is a convenient way to benefit from your worn cat utilization. Here you will find all the contact information to hand your used Audi RS3 converter to a dealer, and they will do the rest of the routine.
