The efficient and safe operation of modern cars owes much to Platinum Group Metals (PGMs).
PGMs are used to lower emissions from internal combustion engines, in the production of hydrogen, and in fuel cells for electric vehicles. They are also being studied as a way to improve the performance of lithium batteries, thereby bringing forward the advent of clean and safe mobility in the 21st Century.
The electronic and safety systems that boost automobile reliability make use of these PGMs' conductivity, stability and durability.
PGMs can be used in a very efficient way, only a few grams are needed in a catalytic converter to make a hugh contribution in saving emissions.
