Indonesia is one of the countries that has large coal reserves in the world, but its utilization is still limited to the manufacture of briquettes and as fuel for electricity generation. On the one hand the results of the study indicate that activated charcoal can be made from organic and inorganic materials mentioned in high carbon content. In this case it is as raw material for making activated carbon because it has a high carbon content. Meanwhile, the textile industry is one of the industries that developed in East Kalimantan, especially Samarinda. Where liquid substances from chemicals can increase the concentration of pH, TSS, BOD and COD if directly discharged into the environment without first processing. One way to reduce levels of pollutants from liquid waste is by means of adsorption using activated carbon. This study aims to determine the capacity of activated carbon to the pH, TSS, BOD and COD values in Samarinda waste cloth wastewater. Low rank coal is carbonized at 600 for 1 hour, then activates physics at 800 for 2 hours. As much as 700 ml of Samarinda waste cloth industrial wastewater is adsorbed with activated carbon from low rank coal with a mass of 5, 10 and 15% by mass to waste with an adsorption time of 120 minutes. The best results are obtained at a mass of 15% with a percentage decrease or % removal in conditions: pH value 7.67; TSS 92%; BOD 47.1% and COD 39.26%
