This research study carbon activation prepared from Bagasse, a waste of sugar factory. The activation was conducted in water vapor at 600°C (C600) and 700 °C (C700). The activated carbon was then tested for water vapor adsorption. The produced-carbon has diffraction peak at 2θ of 25°, with surface area are 584.940 m²/g and 533.301 m²/g for C600 and C700, respectively. C600 also shows higher water vapor adsorption than C700, the value is 0.223 g/g. It shows a potency of Bagasse waste as raw material for adsorbent powder.
