Jumputan is one of South Sumatera art crafts that increasingly produced by textile industries in the region. Dyeing and washing process are applied in jumputan production that will contribute to the increase of chemical content in waste water. This research will address the solution to this problem by investigating the waste water treatment using continuous adsorption process with activated carbon made from betel nuts as an adsorbent. Activated carbon was produced at carbonization temperature 500°C and activated by 0.5 M HCl and sized 18 mesh sieve. Adsorption was performed using Fixed-bed adsorber made from fiberglass with 100 cm height and 10 cm diameter. Jumputan liquid waste was fed from the top of the column at 58 mL/min. The height of bed was varied at 5, 15, 25 cm and sampling time was performed in 30, 60, 90, 120, 150 min to determine COD reduction. Optimum condition of this process is 25 cm of bed height and 150 min of sampling time that reduces COD value of waste water to 99.69%.
