Charcoal briquettes are the newest form of energy from biomass, which is an alternative fuel to replace oil and gas, both in industrial and household activities. This study aims to analyze the effect of variations in the amount of adhesive on the water destruction index, ash content and calorific value of corn cob briquettes. the use of tapioca flour concentration of 0%, 3%, 5%, and 7%, this study used one factor RAL with ANOVA analysis to determine the effect of the use of various adhesives on corn cob briquettes. This research produces briquettes that have met SNI standards, 0% adhesive concentration produces a moisture content of 0.19%, an ash content of 0.14%, an index of destruction of 0.19% and a calorific value of 5,655 Cal/gr. The adhesive concentration is 3% with a water content value of 0.21%, an ash content of 0.33%, a destruction index of 0.28% and a calorific value of 5.398 Cal/gr. The adhesive concentration is 5% with a moisture content value of 0.22%, an ash content of 0.35%, a destruction index of 0.34% and a calorific value of 4.431 Cal/gr. The adhesive concentration is 7% with a water content value of 0.31%, an ash content of 0.89%, a destruction index of 0.38% and a calorific value of 3.382 Cal/gr.
