The briquettes called cattapa briquettes were made from the charcoal of the ketapang
(Terminaliacattapa) with the material ratio of 3: 1. The briquettes were then shaped
and pressed with a special tool and dried under the sun for about 2-5 hours. The
quality of cattapa briquettes was tested in two stages, namely testing the water
content testing and the fuel testing. The results of the analysis on the calculation of the
levels of water reduction show that the cattapa briquettes has a water content
reduction as much as 58.38%, while the results of the fuel testing show that cattapa
briquettes are less effective and the quality is not good.
