​About Converter Recycling​

Catalytic Converters are used by almost every vehicle on the road today. First introduced in the mid-70s, Catalytic Converters were mandated as an emission control device to greatly reduce the toxic constituents produced by a vehicles exhaust system.

This reduction occurs through the catalyzing of toxic constituents with Platinum Group Metals (PGMs), such as Platinum, Palladium, and Rhodium. KBI has the ability to capture the value of these PGMs. 

KBI has attained a great reputation in the Scrap Catalytic Converter Recovery industry by always providing our customers with the utmost in quality service, convenient drop-off or pick-up options, and the most competitive prices on the West Coast.

Anti-Theft Policies

KBI adheres to a strict anti-theft policy, complying with all guidelines and requirements of California B&P Code 21610.
