Bio: Dr. Kitirote Wantala received his Ph.D. (Chemical Engineering) from Thammasat University (TU), Thailand in 2010. He subsequently entered lecturer of Chemical Engineering department, Faculty of Engineering, Khon Kaen University in 2011 and led a group on Environmental Catalysis named “Chemical Kinetics and Applied Catalysis Laboratory, CKCL KKU”. He is now an associate professor.

Dr. Wantala’s current researches focus on Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) such as photocatalysis, Fenton-like, electro-Fenton, Heavy metal adsorption process, Catalysis technology, Environmental catalysis, and Nano-material synthesis. In addition, He also focus on Bio-Fuel production by pyrolytic catalysis especially basic catalyst prepared from wastes. He has published over 60 articles as an author or co-author in peer-reviewed journals.
