JGSEE-CEE is pleased to congratulate Dr. Pornlada Daorattanachai, a researcher under the Advanced Fuel Processing Laboratory, for receiving the 2014 Outstanding Student Award from the Thailand Graduate Institute of Science and Technology (TGIST) and the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) on 16 July 2014 in Bangkok. This award is presented each year to selected students recognized for the outstanding research work they performed during their studies.

During her doctoral studies, Dr. Pornlada performed research on the topic of "Catalytic conversion of lignocellulosic materials to furan compounds by hydrolysis/dehydration process”. This work was carried out under the guidance of her main advisor Assoc. Prof. Dr. Navadol Laosiripojana (JGSEE-CEE) and co-advisor Dr. Kajornsak Faungnawakij (NANOTEC, NSTDA). It took about 4 years for these doctoral studies to be completed.

In addition, Dr. Pornlada produced the patent no. 1101003175 (Thailand Patent; Filled Date: 18 November 18 2011; Inventors: K. Faungnawakij, P. Khemthong, N. Viriya-empikul, P. Daorattanachai, N. Laosiripojana) for “Phosphate-based catalyst for furan compound production from biomass and biomass-derivative and catalyst preparation process”. Over the course of her studies, she also published 5 research papers while doing research under the Nanomaterials for Energy and Catalysis Laboratory (NEC) of NANOTEC (Thailand) and the Department of Energy and Hydrocarbon Chemistry of the Graduate School of Engineering at Kyoto University (Japan).
