Recycling spent automotive catalysts


At Umicore and our Umicore Autocatalyst Recycling network, we consider it our duty to provide you with the overall best value, including monetary return, environmental performance, accuracy, transparency, high business standards and personal ethics.

Umicore is active in all parts of the supply chain, from producing new catalysts to recycling spent ones.

In addition, our local partners allow us to provide a full service, satisfying all possible customer needs.

While all spent autocatalyst materials are ultimately smelted and refined in Hoboken (Belgium), material is constantly being sourced, pre-processed and sampled via various Umicore subsidiaries:

  • in Hoboken
  • in Thailand
  • in Brasil

In addition, Umicore relies on a worldwide network of independent partners.
