Green diesel is diesel oil derived from hydrogenated vegetable oils that have better quality than biodiesel, which is in the form of an efficient produce process with no waste and producing les CO2 than petroleum diesel and biodiesl. There green diesel is environmentally friendly. Kapok seed is one of the potential sources of raw materials that can be tan oil resource. Kapok seed produces the Green Diesel. Kpaok seed was produced form fruit that has some different characteristics form one tree to the other tree. Therefore, the characteristics of kapok seed must be known. The research was prepared to know the characterization of kapok seed oil by determining the water content, fatty acid, FFA (free Fatty acid) and quality of kapok seed oil. The quality og kapok seed oil was tested in the laboratory of Technology Oil Gas and Coal Chemical Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering University Of Gajah Mada. The result showed brown kapok seed oil. The analysis of kapok seed oil contained several fatty acids; the most dominant was 50.89% linoleic acid, palmitic acid 20.93%, and oleic acid 17.84%. the FFA content was 7.35%. The results quality of oil had Specific Gravity with 0.911 g/ml. Kinematic viscosity 37.29 mm²/s, and Flash Point 252.3ͦ C and 3 ͦ C Pour Point. Key words: kapok seed oil, alternative energy, green diesel
