A selective vapour phase dehydrochlorination (DHC) of chloro alkanes was achieved over a simple iron oxide catalyst system. The chloro alkanes were selectively dehydrochlorinated to their corresponding alkenes. This catalyst was also found to be effective for the removal of chlorine from fuel oil derived from the degradation of PVC containing waste plastics.
