Energy demand on an international scale continues to increase from time to time in line with the increasing process of industrialization around the world. The economic pattern, which initially focused on the agricultural sector, has become an economic pattern that relies on the industrial sector. So it is necessary to think together is how to save energy in addition to looking for alternative energy sources to reduce dependence on petroleum. So this requires creative efforts to use horse dung into bioarang briquettes. Bioarang briquettes are a renewable and environmentally friendly alternative energy source. The raw material in this study used dried horse manure with a drying percentage of 26.4%. Furthermore, horse manure mixed with starch with the ratio between horse manure and starch is 3: 1. Next, the mixture is pressed with a pressure of 10 bar to obtain biomass briquettes with a weight of 10 grams each then dried under the sun for 3 days. so that the percentage of drying is obtained at 59.3%, then processed into bioarang through the pyrolysis process. The pyrolysis process is carried out using a heating oven (retort) with a constant heating temperature of around 300oC with variations in the length of the pyrolysis time (holding time) ½, 1, 1½, 2, 2½ hours. The results showed that the gross energy of bioarang briquettes increased by an average of 3% for every 0.5 hour increase in the length of the pyrolysis process, while the water content of bioarang briquettes decreased by 0.5%.
