Energy demand on an international scale continues to increase from time to time with the industrialization process around the world. The economic pattern that focuses on the agricultural sector becomes an economic pattern that is based on the industrial sector. So, what needs to be considered together is how to avoid giving energy in addition to looking for alternative energy sources to reduce dependence on petroleum. This requires the basis for creative efforts to use horse feses into biomass briquettes. Biomass briquettes are a renewable and environmentally friendly alternative energy source. The raw material in this study uses dried horse feses with a drying percentage of 26.4%. Then the horses beat each other. The ratio between horse feses (B) and starch glue (A) or the B / A ratio is 3, 5, 7, and 10. Next, the mixture is made with a pressure of 10 bar to obtain biomass briquettes with a weight of 10 grams each then dried under light sun for 3 days. The results showed that the average air content of the biomass samples was 12.357%, while the dry content was obtained 87.643%. The largest energy content is obtained at a ratio of 0.33 which is equal to 4688.991 kcal / kg.
