Quality Assurance...

When your converters reach our processing center, they are immediately counted and graded. Our lab assay testing, combined with our special layout process ensures you get the best price for your product. Whether you have ten or 10,000 units, we will lay out your converters and work with you to understand our grading process.


IRT processes precious metals, specifically platinum group metals derived from auto catalyst, in our on-site, state-of-the-art metallurgical laboratory. Our precise, reliable grading process allows us to quickly and accurately process catalytic converters and pay you top dollar for your material.

At IRT, we believe grading is the most important aspect of catalyst recycling, and promise to work closely with you to develop fair and accurate grading techniques. This, along with our access to world markets and ability to hedge metals, ensures our customers consistent and transparent pricing of all material in a continuously changing market.
