Johnson Matthey PGM Refining is the market leader in refining pre-processed spent automotive catalytic converters. JM is able to refine pre-processed ceramic and metallic catalysts as well as production residues. Our smelting facility at Brimsdown in North London, UK offers highly experienced sampling, analysis, milling and evaluation techniques. In addition, our plasma arc furnace allows for maximum PGM recovery from the feed material prior to entering the refining circuit resulting in the highest efficiencies and PGM returns possible.

JM does not directly accept spent auto catalysts, however we operate closely with a global network of partners who collect and process the catalytic convertors in order for the material to enter JM refining circuits. Please contact us for details on our global network of autocat partners.
