In this study, we investigated the cause of the decrease in activities of $VO_x/TiO_2$ SCR catalyst used for the burner reactor at a scale of $150000Nm^3/hr$ using X-ray diffraction (XRD), brunauer-emmett-teller (BET), atomic emission spectroscopy inductively coupled plasma (AES ICP), $H_2$ temperature programmed reduction ($H_2$-TPR), and $NH_3$ temperature programmed desorption ($NH_3$-TPD) analysis. Since the crystallization of the $VO_x$ and phase transition of $TiO_2$ did not occur, it was concluded that the catalyst was not deactivated by the thermal effect. In addition, from the elemental analysis showing that a large quantity of calcium was detected but not sulfur, the deactivation process of the $VO_x/TiO_2$ SCR catalyst was mainly caused by Ca but not by $SO_2$. The calcium was also found to decrease the catalytic activity by means of reducing $NH_3$ adsorption.
