The rice production ranks third of all cereals in world, after maize and wheat. However, the rice is the main carbohydrate source for the majority of the world population. Methods of research that will be done are to look at the silica composition of rice husk briquettes that can be utilized. The chemical composition can in see by using method Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The chemical composition of rice husk briquettes studied were rice husk briquettes before being used as adsorbent and after is used as adsorbents at the distillation process. The chemical composition of rice husk obtained after the process comparing to before the process of distillation using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). Rice husk briquettes made with a size 12 cm a have density is 1,537 kg/m3. Results of the study of chemical elements by looking at the chemical composition of rice husk charcoal, shows that the compound silica (SiO2) husk has a value of 96.74% composition. The distillation process proved that the silica contained in rice husk briquettes can be used for the distillation of sea water into clean water.
