This paper mainly focused on the development of geopolymer technology by searching for alternative aggregates commonly used, sand substituting with coir fibre as coconut tree is abundant in Malaysia. As we know, sand is a limited source which one day may run out when we used extensively. Thus, an alternative which can conserve this limited resource should being developed for that purpose. In this research, we mainly enhanced the geopolymer by improving with coir fibre with different fibre length and coir fibre mass composition. By conducting different testing to obtain the data, we can evaluate the improvement whether had achieved or not. The testing that had been chosen is Flexural Strength, Scanning Electron Microscope and Water Absorption Test. The result from these testing will then discussed and evaluate the suitable of coir fibre to replace sand as aggregate. This research is hoping give the exposure to development of natural agriculture in enhancement structure application
