In this research, the dechlorination of 2-chloro-2-butene in C5 oil from the fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) process was performed through a catalytic reaction. Metal oxides were used as active materials and ZSM-5 was used as the supporting material for the catalysts; the metal was cobalt, iron, or manganese. After the preparation of three types of metal-oxide/ZSM-5 catalysts through the ion-exchange method, the activities and characteristics of each catalyst were evaluated. Through screening tests, the Co3O4/ZSM-5 catalyst was selected as the dechlorination catalyst, and the performance of catalysts containing different amounts of Co3O4 relative to ZSM-5 were tested.
