Recycling Emission Control Equipment

Recycling Emission Control Equipment from Mining Equipment

Red Fox Resources purchases spent emission control parts from the mining industry.  As exposure to emissions from equipment used in mining can present a concentrated source of potentially harmful emissions in a confined space, emission control technologies are a crucial part of protecting mine workers from exposure to emissions from diesel and gasoline powered equipment.

Mine equipment tends to run high hours with continuous use and the emission control technology will periodically need to be replaced.  Red Fox purchases these spent parts for the purpose of recycling the platinum group metals (PGM) contained in the emission control devices.

Red Fox purchases the following emission control products from the mining industry:

  • 3-Way Catalysts from gasoline engines
  • Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC)
  • Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)
  • Catalyzed add-on mufflers


Common mining equipment and engine manufacturers from which Red Fox recycles emission control parts include:

  • Caterpillar
  • Komatsu
  • Cummins
  • MTU
  • Liebherr
  • Hyundai
  • Volvo
  • Terex
  • John Deere
  • Hitachi
  • Doosan
  • Sany

These mining equipment engines may include equipment from the following emission control manufacturers that Red Fox actively purchases back for recycling.

  • Airflow Catalyst Systems
  • Nett Technologies
  • DCL
  • Johnson Matthey
  • Miratech
  • Skyline

The value for the emission control components recycled by Red Fox Resources depend on the size of the engine, manufacturer and geography of where the unit is located but generally run from $25 – $1,000 per part.
