From scrap merchants to toll refineries. Due to their high value, accurate grading of the precious metal content is critical to ensure every stakeholder receives a fair share for their contribution. When a car reaches the end of life, the convertor is scrapped, and the precious metals are recovered, extracted and refined in a recycling chain comprising several different stakeholders. 

At Malvern Panalytical, we created a fast, easy and transparent way to determine the precious metal content in the car convertor. And according to the highest safety standards. Join live our demo-on-your-desk to learn how our Epsilon benchtops, using X-ray fluorescence, offer a simple technique. The method does not require extensive sample preparation or skilled operators with a chemistry background, but in the end the result will be an accurate content determination.
