The development of the textile industry has had a positive impact on economic growth in
Indonesia. Batik is one of the products of the textile industry that is proliferating in Indonesia.
Dyes are the main ingredients in the textile and batik industrial process. One of the dyes used
is indigosol, and about 15% of the total dyes used will result in industrial liquid waste. The
presence of these dyes can damage the water and soil ecosystems. Liquid sewage treatment
is needed to minimize the amount of contamination against groundwater and surface water.
A standard method used in the handling of liquid waste is by adsorption process with various
adsorbents. Commonly used adsorbents are silica gel, activated alumina, zeolite, polymer,
and activated carbon. Activated charcoal from mangroves becomes an alternative to natural
adsorbents with a large surface area. The ability of activated charcoal as an adsorbent was
the focus of this study, both by the activation process by Fe cations and the addition of
hydrogen peroxide activators. Characterization using a UV-Vis spectrophotometer is
performed to see changes in indigosol concentration during the adsorption process. Results
have shown that charcoal with Fe and H2O2 give a better performance on adsorption of
indigosol than pure charcoal. Removal of indigosol by charcoal + Fe and H2O2 can reach
