Prof. Paul Truong

After finishing Ph.D. in Agronomy at the University of Queensland, Australia in 1968, Professor Paul Truong became the Dean of Faculty of Agriculture, Can Tho University. Since 1975, he returned to Australia and taught at the University of Queensland. For many years, he  has devoted his life to research and study the applications of Vetiver System (VS) in the field of environmental protection. His  pioneering research on Vetiver grass tolerance to adverse conditions, heavy metal tolerance and pollution control has established the benchmark for VS applications in toxic wastes, mine rehabilitation and  wastewater treatment, for which he has won several World Bank and the King of Thailand Awards and was enrolled in the "Southeast Asian celebrity." He was also a representative of Queensland in the Australian National Council on research and development methods of plants in saline soil areas, each in charge of plant application programs to combat soil erosion for Queensland. Many his valuable scientific reports have been  published and translated into different languages ​​around the world.

Currently, Prof. Paul Truong is the Director of The Vetiver Network International, responsible for Asia and Pacific Region, and the Director of the Veticon Consulting.
