A catalytic converter is an exhaust emission control device found in a vehicle’s exhaust system.

It converts harmful pollutants like carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxides into less harmful substances like carbon dioxide, water vapor, and nitrogen gas.

This transformation is achieved by facilitating chemical reactions using catalyst substances like platinum, palladium, and rhodium. Catalytic converters are essential for meeting emissions regulations and reducing the environmental impact of automotive exhaust.
