What is the DPF Recycling Program?

Diesel particulate filters play a pivotal role in emissions control systems within diesel engines. Over time, they accumulate soot and contaminants, necessitating maintenance or replacement. But what becomes of retired DPFs once they are removed from vehicles? That’s where DPF recycling comes in.

Recycling for DPFs entails the responsible disposal of used filters and the extraction of valuable materials such as platinum, palladium, and rhodium. These precious metals are not only costly but also finite resources. By engaging in recycling, we reduce the need for further mining and extraction, thereby mitigating environmental harm and preserving these invaluable materials for future generations.

Recycling DPFs involves several key steps, including:

  • Collection: Used DPFs are collected from various sources, including vehicles, machinery, and industrial equipment.
  • Cleaning and preparation: Collected DPFs undergo thorough cleaning and preparation to remove soot, contaminants, and other residues.
  • Precious metal recovery: The precious metals in DPFs are extracted and recycled.
  • Environmentally responsible disposal: Any remaining materials are disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner to minimize waste and environmental harm.

Why Recycle?

It's essential to ensure that your DPF undergoes thorough cleaning and recycling to minimize its environmental footprint and maintain compliance with state and federal regulations. Here are just a few essential reasons to consider recycling your DPF:

  • Environmental benefits: Recycling for DPFs reduces the environmental impact of mining and processing precious metals. It also decreases the amount of waste sent to landfills, contributing to a healthier planet.
  • Resource conservation: The metals extracted from recycled DPFs can be repurposed for various industries, including automotive and electronics, reducing the need for new mining operations.
  • Economic advantages: Recycling for DPFs can be a cost-effective solution for businesses. It allows them to recover value from their used filters and reduces the expense of disposing of hazardous waste.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, we have new aftermarket DPF’s for sale if yours is cracked, damaged or can not be restored.

The pricing range between these two options will be very significant. A new replacement DPF cost will depend on what kind of vehicle you have however it will most likely cost you thousands of dollars.

If the truck is doing multiple regens (4+ per week), there is a high chance your DOC needs replacing. If you notice your vehicle doing multiple regenerations in a short period of time, this usually means precious metals are no longer working.

Removing the DPF from your aftertreatment system can be a legal issue depending on where you are from. In some Canadian provinces, it is mandatory to have a DPF filter as a part of your aftertreatment system. Having your filters removed or “deleted” could lead to unexpected charges.

We offer and stock replacement parts for your aftertreatment system including DPF filters, clamps, gaskets, bungs and sensors.
