convertidor catalítico


Explanation:
Carmen, this is a widely used term. In order to make sure, an Internet search for convertidor catalítico yields more than 500 hits. Even if you limit your search with, for example, "vehículo" and "combustible", you get more than 100 hits. Below you have an pretty informative link (where you can see the difference between "catalizador" and "convertidor catalítico").
Un saludo.

catalizador


Explanation:
In garages, that's what mechanics call it. Given the tone and level of the text, that's the way I'd go. Engineers have other terms, none of which would be needed here.
