B Car silencer Mud

  1. Mar 15, 2017 #1
    Hello folks

    I'm worried something wrong is going or
    may be I'm way too concerned about it
    as I had studied science after my 12th grade.
    But People here in gulf selling car silencers
    Mud. The Mud gathered in Cars silencer
    filters are sold at very high prices
    I have heard that the Mud or whole filter box
    purchased by some locals and than
    exported to Dubai from there these mud containers
    are exported to Spain or Iran. There is no info regarding this Mud on the Internet that where and for what purpose they use this Mud. Heard it is used by the black world people for atomic purposes please do your searches dear members and inform about it. Is it normal or threatening to our society from gulf. Saad

    The catalytic converters in the exhaust systems of modern cars contain platinum, which is valuable enough (at about $1000/ounce not much less than gold) that people will recycle the converters to recover the platinum.
