The Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB) and Mesocarp fiber ash (FB) was obtained from the boiler at NAM HONG Palm Oil Company Limited, Thailand. The optimum condition was used in Na-A zeolite synthesis from oil palm ash. The obtain produce was Na12Al12Si12O48· 27H2O. The sample was dried in hot air oven. The calcium exchange capacity (CEC) of 386.39 mg CaCO3/g of product, and the 86.05% of pure Na-A zeolite phase was formed. In batch experimental study, the synthetic wastewater was prepared. In order to find out the optimal zeolite dosage was added into 10 mg/L of total ammonium nitrogen solution. The results of unionized ammonia (NH3) removal efficiency indicated that zeolite A standard and zeolite from oil palm ash are better than commercial zeolite. The optimum dosage of 0.2, 0.25 and 0.2 g of zeolite A standard, zeolite from oil palm ash and commercial zeolite, respectively. The NH3 removal capacity from giant freshwater prawn farm, zeolite A standard is better than zeolite from oil palm ash and commercial zeolite, respectively. In the large volume of synthetic wastewater (1000 mL), the zeolite from oil palm ash is the best ammonia removal capacity when compared with zeolite A standard and commercial zeolite.
