A large part of the wastewater generated by the Chemical and Transformation Industries are discharged with the presence of organic pollutants, in many cases they contain refractory organic compounds such as formaldehyde in a very low concentration for their recovery to be profitable, but it is high enough for to constitute a source of important pollution, which causes a loss of biodiversity and retards sustainable development. In the present work, the elimination of formaldehyde by the catalytic wet oxidation reaction is evaluated as part of the tertiary treatment of aqueous effluents in a three-phase reaction system, using copper and cobalt mixed oxides catalysts supported in alumina (alpha phase), the results of the characterization of the catalyst used are also shown, by conventional techniques.
