Palm shell is resulted waste from industry process of palm oil which its usage is not maximal. Treatment of palm shell as activated carbon is one of alternative way to treat solid waste of palm shell for giving economy value. The objective of this study is to know the effect of concentration of H3PO4 and activation time on characteristic of activated carbon that resulted. Four activator concentration of H3PO4 (10, 15, 20, dan 25%) during 18, 20, 22, dan 24 hours. The best characteristic based on the standard SII No. 0258-79 and SNI 06-3730-19, is by using activation time during 24 hours with concentration of activator 25%, result activated carbon with inherent moisture 3,76%; ash content 4,22%; volatile matter 10,88%; fixed carbon 81,14%, capacity on iod 877,71 mg/g.
