Oil palm empty fruit bunches (OPEFB) is one of the solid waste which can be used as raw material for pulp. The objective of this research was to determine the effect of acetic acid: formic acid ratio on the characteristics of OPEFB pulp. The result showed that the increasing of the amount of formic acid can reduce levels of cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin and pulp yield. The best results was achieved on the treatment ratio of acetic acid and formic acid = 85:15 which produced 73,75% cellulose, 7.78% hemicellulose, 1.61% lignin, and 32.57% yield. Keywords: acetic acid, formic acid, OPEFB, pulp.
