What is a catalytic converter?

The car catalytic converter is a unique product that ensures the implementation of environmental standards and, accordingly, is responsible for the environmental safety of automotive equipment.

The catalytic converter (part of the exhaust system) is designed to reduce the emission of harmful substances with the exhaust gases of the car.


Engines of internal combustion at work produce harmful substances:

  • CO-Carbon Oxide
  • HC hydrocarbons
  • NO x - nitrogen oxides

These substances are recognized as harmful to the environment, and legislation requires them to reduce their quantity.

The catalytic converter is a "honeycomb" ceramic or metal substrate coated with a catalyst substance placed in a metal casing.


The principle of operation of catalytic converters is the chemical conversion of pollutants by catalysis into compounds acceptable to the environment.

The use of catalytic converters is the only commercial effective tool to improve the environmental performance of automotive equipment and to ensure compliance with technical regulations on emissions.
