In this study, zeolite-X was synthesized from rice husk silica and aluminum metal as raw materials. The zeolite was then calcined at 550 ° C for 6 h and subsequently tested as a catalyst for transesterification of palm oil with methanol to produce biodiesel.Transesterification experiments demonstrated that the zeolite produced exhibited good activity as a catalyst for conversion of palm oil into biodiesel, as reflected by the composition of the biodiesel according to GC-MS analysis, which are in accordance with the fatty acids contained in palm oil. The catalyst was characterized using XRD, FTIR, and SEM. The XRD revealed that zeolite-X synthesized has a faujasite phase, composing of crystallite shapes of cubic, rectangular, and irregular as seen by SEM. The FTIR analysis revealed the presence of functional groups associated with zeolite.
