Seaweed is one of the natural sources usually use in industrial food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and fertiliser. A natural polymer material such as seaweed is found to have excellent bonding mechanism and also the critical factor to achieve sustainability. Malaysia is also rich with seaweed species like Eucheuma Cottonii. The future study was carried out seaweed species from Malaysia especially seaweed from Sabah. This research aimed to investigate the relationship of a few chemical properties namely physical properties, metal element content, microstructure image and chemical component of seaweed type of Eucheuma Cottonii for modifying concrete. This research is mainly base on experimental works. That powdered seaweed from Eucheuma Cottonii was analysis using Energy Dispersive X-Ray (EDX), Scanning Electron Analysis (SEM) and Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FT-IR). All the procedure of the laboratory work complies with the specified and relevant standard. The research had shown that Euchema Cottonii powder content suitable for metal and component to bind together with concrete. Concrete with seaweed powder is alternative to become green construction material for sustainable concrete.
