Biomass briquettes have been made as an alternative energy source from cow dung waste. Molasses and starch were used as binder material with a carbonization temperature of 400 °C for 2 hours. The work aims to produce biomass briquettes with the best heating value based on analysis of composition effect and type of binder on the briquette with calorific value. The heat test results showed that briquettes with 10% sugar cane binding content produced the highest calorific value of 3907.5 calories/gram. Sugar cane drops become the better binder than starch in biomass briquettes production.
Key words: Biomass briquettes / sugar cane drops / starch / calorific value
