This study aimed to determine the effects of a materials combination used by the waste biomass of bamboo and cassava stem mixed with a tapioca adhesive on the quality of charcoal briquettes. The briquettes were made with a combination of the raw materials between the cassava stem and bamboo of 75%:25%, 50%:50%, and 25%:75%. Then, the used charcoal materials were mixed with three tapioca concentrations of 8%, 10%, and 12%. The characteristics of the charcoal briquettes, such as density, moisture content, shatter resistance index, calorific value, combustion rate, and compressive strength were observed. The charcoal briquettes with a high percentage of bamboo combination showed to increase the calorific value and the compressive strength but decreased the rate of combustion. In contrast, the low concentration of tapioca glue increased the density, compressive strength, and shatter resistance index but decreased the combustion rate. It was revealed that the used material combination and the adhesive content affected various properties of charcoal briquettes. Therefore, it can be suggested that the materials combination of bamboo and cassava stems waste can be utilized for making briquettes with a low percentage of tapioca adhesive.
