    Indonesia is very rich for its natural resources, both those that can be renewed (such as flora and fauna),and not (such as mines andfossilfoels). As the availability offossilfoels is getting less, the price of it is getting more expensive, so Indonesian people try to find alternative foels. One of their choices is to make use ofkapuk seed. The process of Biodiesel making (methyl ester) by implementing the zeolit catalyst is Trans-esterfication reaction, which is basically. A process of ester ion exchange. This kind of process is also called mrthanolysis, the process between fat or oil and methanol that becomes methyl ester and glyserol, with the proportion of fat and methanol is 1:6. This research was aimed to find the best condition and also to know the quantity of catalyst used. According to the result of the research , analyzed by using GC (Gas Chromatography), methyl ester would be obtained as much as 0,342 percent area and yield as much as 1,7699%, this result could be obtained with the process time allocation 50 minutes and the catalyst quantity 10 gram.
