Recycling automotive catalysts

We are Elemental Asia Sdn Bhd, a part of the world major recycling group. We specialize in spent automotive catalysts recycling (sac). Our Asian branch was founded in 2019 as a continuation of Asian precious metals recycling and trading business.

Elemental Asia focuses on the wholesale purchase of ceramic and metal catalysts that contain the monolith, which contains the three precious metals Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium. We price the material based on processing and laboratory tests.

We buy over 50 tons of monolith per month, it is assumed that we can obtain 0.7 kg of monolith from one catalyst.

We assist customers in transporting catalysts throughout Asia. Free transportation applies to Malaysia and Thailand.
