Monolithos Profile

MONOLITHOS possesses a cost-effective logistics optimized collection network for spent catalytic converters covering the whole Greek territory, islands included. For the purposes of pre-processing the automotive spent catalytic converters, after their storing and sorting (ceramic – metallic), MONOLITHOS acquired a de-canning facility with capability of treating 40.000 converters per year.

MONOLITHOS also manufactures catalytic converters and diesel particulate filters (DPFs) for all vehicle makes and models. The Direct-fit catalytic converters use either ceramic honeycomb or high flow metallic substrate and are available with 2 years or 80.000 warranty and EU homologation. The Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) incorporate precious metals in order to have catalytic activity and their honeycomb is either conventional cordierite or novel Silicon Carbide (SiC).

MONOLITHOS manufactures and regenerates catalytic converters and diesel particulate filters for heavy duty mobile applications (off road construction machines and trucks/buses). Except from Catalytic Converters and Particulate Filters, the commercial MONOLITHOS’ portfolio includes Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCRs) devices for reduction emission for Euro VI heavy duty applications (more than 500bhp).

The company’s office is located in Athens, its production facility is located near the centre of Athens (Ak. Platonos). Furthermore, MONOLITHOS has a storage facility in the city of Thessaloniki (north of Greece). MONOLITHOS is an independent SME according to EU standards. More than 37% of MONOLITHOS’ annual turnover is coming from exports (mainly to Germany).
