Bioethanol purification techniques have developed very rapidly. Bioethanol purification techniques are usually carried out in several ways, namely distillation, membrane pervoration and adsorption. Purification technology is still being developed to obtain an efficient and easy to do purification technology. Purification technique by adsorption is one of the purification techniques that is very easy to do where the raw material of the adsorbent is very easy to obtain. This study used adsorbents from petung bamboo with sizes 80 and 200 mesh that were activated. This study was conducted to determine and characterize pellet-shaped bamboo carbon from bamboo activated carbon with a size of 200 mesh and obtain a bioethanol concentration greater than 99% through a distillation adsorption method simultaneously. The results of the adsorption process are expected to be one of the solutions for renewable energy raw materials replacing fuel oil sourced from non-renewable fossil materials.
