Palm oil mill will give impact for environment such as nitrogen. This paper will describe clearly about ability of activated and natural bentonites to absorb nitrogen derived from palm oil mill wastewater. Sampling of bentonite was obtained from the Sungai Rengas in Jambi Province, Indonesia. Bentonite was smoothed and activated using a 1.6 M HCl. Measurement of nitrogen content using UV-vis instruments. Result of this study showed that activated bentonite can reduce 86% nitrogen and natural bentonite can reduce 85% nitrogen from anaerobic pond. This study showed that activated bentonite better than natural bentonite to reduce nitrogen at anaerobic pond from palm oil mill
