Iron oxide carbon composite catalysts were prepared for dechlorination of chlorinated organic compounds included in fuel oil obtained from waste plastic. The optimum preparation method was established based on measurements of initiol activities in the catalytic decomposition of chlorocyclohexane in a pulse-type catalytic reactor. Moreover, in the dechlorination of chlorocyclohexane and the fuel oil obtained from waste plastic in a flow-type catalytic reactor, a high rate of dechlorination was found to be maintained for at least 5-6 h.
