Find more about us.
Valdi Katalizatory is a company specialising in purchase and treatment of used vehicle catalysts. Our activities include metal and ceramic converters as well as particulate filter treatment. We have been operating for 20 years now. We have manager to accomplish a stable position in the sector and we have many trustful and regular customers.
Did you know that used catalysts still have some value due to the presence of precious metals in their composition? Price of the converter depends on its individual properties and varying prices of platinum, palladium and rhodium. We have the necessary knowledge and experience which will allow us to reliably determine the value of your catalyst.
Our expert knowledge will make the realistic evaluation of the device value much faster. Additionally, we offer many different facilities including free catalyst transport, and quick online evaluation of its initial value.

Valdi Katalizatory is pioneer in the field of steel
A dynamic growth of Valdi Katalizatory created new perspectives in the field of vehicle catalyst recycling. We are the first company of this kind in Poland which has introduced a vehicle catalyst treatment line. Due to the use of the latest technological achievements we have become a source of inspiration for other companies specialising in similar fields.
A ceramic block is a core element of this type of catalysts. Ceramic catalysts have a network of canals with a square cross-section covered with platinum or palladium. In comparison with the metal catalysts, they need more time to reach the target temperature and in consequence they purify the fumes in a much slower fashion; additionally, they are less durable in comparison with the steel converters.
Metal catalysts have a metal block. They quickly reach the operating temperature and therefore are more efficient at reducing fume toxic content in comparison with the ceramic catalysts. This catalyst type is more resistant to mechanical damage and is durable.
FAP / DPF particulate filter in exhaust system reduces fume particulate emission. It is usually situated behind the catalyst and is made up of a ceramic body in a metal casing with a series of parallel canals inside.
