In aligning to the rapid industrial development, the needs of catalyst nowadays are increasing. Oil and gas industry is one of the example especially in Continuous Catalytic Cracking Platforming Unit, in which the process produces Pt/Al2O3 catalyst waste approximately 2000-3000 kg/year and contains of 3200 ppm platinum metals. It becomes the reason why organic acid leaching and aqua regia leaching is needed to recover the platinum metals to save cost because its price is very expensive and spent catalyst waste is also considered as hazardous and toxic materials. In this experiment, there are two different methods used to obtain the recovery of platinum metals from spent Pt/Al2O3 catalyst. The methods used are leaching with oxalic acid and leaching with aqua regia. The experiment showed that leaching with aqua regia results in higher leaching efficiency percentage with the number of 19.917%. The result is obtained with operation temperature of 300oC and solid-liquid ratio of 20 g/L.
