A catalyst (or catalytic converter) is a device widely used in many vehicles powered by internal combustion engines. Its main role is to convert toxic gases such as Carbon monoxide (CO), Nitrogen oxide (NOx) and Hydrocarbons (HC) into more friendly gases for the environment (CO2, NO2, H2O). For this purpose Catalyst (ceramic or metallic) is coated with precious metals such as a platinum, palladium, rhodium.
BEDA SA has been a pioneer in the manufacture and import of catalysts for over 30 years.
In 2000, in collaboration with the University of Patras and the National Center for Research and Technological Development (CERTH), we produced the first and only Greek Catalyst BEDA CAT.
At the same time, we collaborated with some of the biggest names in the industry such as CATCO, MAGNAFLOW, ITACAT, THREEWAY and TES.
