The rapid development of infrastructure has led to a shortage of construction materials. Therefore, the utilization of waste or potential materials is gaining attention. This study aims to investigate the effect of partially replacing Portland cement with sugarcane bagasse ash (SCBA) in Phu Yen province and sea sand-seawater (SSSW) on the properties of foam concrete. Portland cement was replaced with SCBA at 0, 5, 10, and 15% by mass of the binder. The results showed that the compressive strength of foam concrete was reduced at 7 days due to the SCBA replacement. However, the inclusion of 5% and 10% SCBA increased the compressive strength and reduced the water absorption of foam concrete compared to the reference concrete at 91 days. Moreover, the combination of SCBA and SSSW significantly contributed to the enhancement of compressive strength and reduction of water absorption of foam concrete at 91 days, especially when SCBA replacement was less than 10%. In general, the use of SCBA and SSSW is feasible in the production of foam concrete, considering the increasing scarcity of construction materials and the goal of reducing CO2 emissions.
