Increased energy use is caused by population growth and depletion of world oil reserves. Emissions from fossil fuels give problems to every country to immediately use alternative energy. Briquette is one of the methods used to convert biomass energy sources. Other biomasses such as coconut shells, wood charcoal, rice husks, and sawdust can be made into briquettes. Biomass stoves are stoves used specifically for the use of non-fossil fuels. The current problem is the design of biomass stoves used by respondents, one of which is biomass stove that is not ergonomic and difficult to control the size of the fire. So this research was conducted to design an ergonomic biomass stove using the Ergonomic Function deployment (EFD) method which is a development from Quality Function Deployment (QFD). The conclusion of the research design of an ergonomic biomass stove using the Ergonomic Function Deployment (EFD) method is a specification
of the results of the design of a biomass stove needed, namely: a biomass stove that is safe, easy to use, a sizeĀ  that is comfortable to use, a lightweight and durable material , easy to set fire and easy to ignite. Then the anthropometric data used are the dimensions of the width of the palm of the hand measuring 8.62 cm, the dimension of the palm of the hand 4, cm.
