The catalytic activity of the used catalyst, $V_2O_5/TiO_2$, for MSW incinerators was investigated focusing on its regeneration. As the result of the experimental analysis, the NOx removal efficiency difference between the fresh catalyst and used catalyst is about 60% at $260^{\circ}C$ and 1, 2-dichlorobenzen (1, 2-DCB) removal efficiency difference is about 14% at $200^{\circ}C$, in honeycomb test. And the catalysts, both the fresh and used, were characterized by XRD, TGA, and ICP techniques in order to investigate the deactivation. On the basis of the results, it is found that the used catalyst is deactivated by ammonium-sulfates, heavy metals (Pb, As etc.), alkali metals (Ca), and phase transfer of $TiO_2$. Also calcination treatment under nitrogen and air condition was excellent than washing and calcination treatment.
