Carbon dioxide concentration of railroad passenger cabin is obliged to be kept lower than guideline values of 'Indoor air quality guideline for public transportations', but actual carbon dioxide concentration frequently exceeds this guideline value during the morning and evening rush hours. For improving comfortability and satisfaction of passengers, concentration control method using $Al_2O_3$ adsorbents was presented. The adsorbent is made from $Al_2O_3$ and LiOH. $Al_2O_3$ perform as a frame and LiOH as a chemical adsorbent. The adsorbent performance experiment was carried out by measuring concentration change of Carbon dioxide in terms of flow, initial concentration and amount of adsorbent. It is expexted that the obtained results will be used to lower carbon dioxide concentration of railroad passenger cabin.
