Automotive catalytic converter

Automotive Catalytic Converter

  • Located in exhaust stream

  • Its substrate is coated with precious metals that act as a catalyst to convert pollutants to H20, CO2, N2, and O2


Aftermarket catalytic converters background

Aftermarket Catalytic Converters(Background)

  • Lower in cost than OEM replacement

  • Must be evaluated and approved by ARB before sale in CA (obtain Executive Order)

  • Required to meet new evaluation procedures and requirements starting 01/01/2009
