Zeolite Y has been synthesized from Kaolin Bangka Belitung as precursor through activation of metakaolin with acid. The synthesis of zeolite Y consist of metakaolinitation, activation metakaolin with sulfuric acid using various concentrations (3, 6, 9, 12, and 15 M), aging, hydrothermal process for 24 hours at 100 ?C. The solid products were characterized with X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), and Scanning Electron Microscopy-Energy Dispersive X-ray (SEM-EDX). The result of XRD and FTIR indicated that zeolite Y formed at the variations 3, 6, 9, 12, and 15M. Based on XRD pattern of the results, phase of zeolite P formed at the variation 3M. The surface morphology and ratio of Si/Al of Zeolite Y was analyzed using SEM-EDX. The SEM micrograph of zeolite Y and P with variation of sulfuric acid 3, 6, 9, 12, and 15M like octahedral and sphere form and the ratio of Si/Al of the products based on EDX are 1.7; 1.6; 1.58; 1.64; and 1.59 respectively.
