Dr Nnorom is an Associate Professor (Environmental Analytical Chemistry). He joined Abia State University in 2000 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2014. He is a Senior Research Fellow, Basel Convention Coordinating Centre for African Region (BCCC-A) and a Network Member of WHO ‘E-waste exposure and children’s health’.

He teaches undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Analytical Chemistry, Instrumentation, Environmental Chemistry, Water Analysis, Air and Soil Analysis, Toxicology etc.

He has worked as a research fellow/consultant with the Basel Convention Coordinating Center for Africa (BCCC-A), the Blacksmith Institute and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Dr Nnorom participated in the E-waste Africa Project of the Secretariat of the Basel Convention, United Nations Programme (UNEP), the Basel Convention Coordinating Centre for Africa (BCCC-Nigeria), Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA), St. Gallen/Switzerland, and the Oeko-Institut (published in May, 2012 as ‘e-Waste Country Assessment Nigeria’, (http://www.ewasteguide.info/Ogungbuyi_2012_BCCC-Empa).

Dr Nnorom has attended several conferences including the XI International Scientific and Technical Conference in Warsaw Poland (with theme “Element Cycle in the Environment: Bio-accumulation, toxicity and prevention” http://www.ios.edu.pl/pol/konferencja/wp-content/themes/23/Agenda.pdf) and the XVII Congress of European Mycologists in Funchal – Madeira, Portugal (http://www.mundiconvenius.pt/eventos/2015/xviicem2015/Congress_Programme_FINAL.PDF).

In 2009, He won an award to represent Africa at the first StEP/NVMP/United Nations University Electronic Waste (E-waste) Summer School at the High Tech Campus Eindhoven, the Netherlands (www.step-initiative.org/summerschool/) from the class went for industrial vist at Umicore Precious Metals Refining, (Hoboken, Belgium) before joining the R’09 Twin World Congress (“Resources Management and Technology for Material and Energy Efficiency”) at Davos, Switzerland.  The R’09 Twin World Congress convened simultaneously in Davos (Switzerland) and Nagoya (Japan) (www.r2009.org/); and the World Resources Forum 2009 (WRF 09), Davos, Switzerland (www.worldresourcesforum.org).

He has attended several conferences/meetings. He attended the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) 9th World Telecommunication/ICT Indicators Meeting (WTIM 11), as an ITU Expert in Mauritius in 2011 where he presented the first paper on E-waste at any of the ITU meetings (http://www.itu.int/ITU-D/ict/wtim11/documents/index.html). In December, 2014 he attended the African Union Commission (AUC) ‘Parliamentarian Colloquium On Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs) – Biodiversity And Chemical/Waste Clusters’ With Theme: “MEAs, A Vehicle For Environmental Sustainability in Africa” at African Union Commission (AUC) Headquarters , Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, (3-5 December 2014) where he presented a paper titled ‘Overview of E-waste management in Africa’.

Dr Nnorom has collaborated with Professor Jerzy Falandysz and his Research Group of Environmental Chemistry, Ecotoxicology & Food Toxicology, Institute of Environmental Sciences & Public Health, University of Gdansk, Poland, since 2010. Jointly the collaboration has studied mushrooms from Nigeria, Poland, Sweden, and Belarus and the outcomes of the joint research have been published in highly reputed journal. He was a guest of Professor Jerzy Falandysz in September, 2015. During his stay at University of Gdansk, Poland, he presented a lecture  titled ‘Electronic waste (e-waste) management in Africa: Challenges and Prospects’.

He participated in the “Person in the Port (PiP) Project” jointly performed by the United Nations University (UNU), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US-EPA), and the Basel Convention Coordination Centre for Africa (BCCC) in Nigeria – all members of the Solving the E-waste Problem (Step) Initiative – partnered together with Electronic Recyclers International (ERI) in order to better understand the quantitative and qualitative aspects of used electronics imports into Nigeria. Project aimed at gathering reliable information and data on the importation of used electrical and electronic equipment (UEEE) and waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE or e-waste) into Nigeria (via the Lagos ports), one of the key countries in West Africa through which UEEEE and WEEE flows. The project focuses on identifying the types and amounts of UEEE and WEEE imported, their origin (exporting countries), their functional status, how they are packaged, labelled and transported, and their fate on arrival in Nigeria. (http://unu.edu/news/news/person-in-the-port-project-to-examine-nigerias-e-waste-imports.html#info and http://www.step-initiative.org/files/step-2014/Publications/Flyer_Person_in_the_Port_Project.pdf ).

The main results of the Person in Port Project was presented to stakeholders at a workshop in Lagos on May 23rd, 2017 (see the Guardian Newspapers (https://guardian.ng/property/60000-tonnes-of-hazardous-wastes-imported-into-nigeria/) and the final report was published in November, 2017  (http://collections.unu.edu/eserv/UNU:6349/PiP_Report.pdf). He also participated in other projects including the ‘Electronic waste (e-waste) impacts and mitigation options in the off-grid renewable energy sector’ (http://www.evidenceondemand.info/electronic-waste-impacts-and-mitigation-options-in-the-off-grid-renewable-energy-sector)

In August 2018, he attended the 38th International Symposium on Halogenated Persistent Organic Pollutants Dioxin 2018 & 10th International PCB Workshop (26 – 31 August 2018) at Kraków, Poland (http://dioxin2018.org/) with a grant awarded by the Organisation for the Prohibition in Chemical Weapons (OPCW). As a Member of the Abia State University ICT Committee, Dr Nnorom was nominated participate in the Stakeholders Roundtable for the Southeast organized by the Nigerian Communication Commission at University of Nigeria Nsukka in November 2018.

In 2019, he won an Elsevier Journal ‘RCR 30 In 30 Best Paper’ Award’. The award was given by Resources, Conservation & Recycling (RCR) to his publication as part of the 30 influential papers published in the past 30 years of RCR (RCR 30 in 30) (https://www.journals.elsevier.com/resources-conservation-and-recycling/news/celebrate-30-years-of-resources-conservation-recycling). The 30 papers were selected from among 2,746 articles published in RCR until the end of 2017. Journal title: Overview of electronic waste (e-waste) management practices and legislations, and their poor applications in the developing countries (Resources, Conservation & Recycling, 2008: 52 (6), 843-858 (Q1 journal; Impact Factor: 5.228) https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0921344908000165.

In 2019 he was a Visiting Research Fellow at Manchester Institute of Biotechnology, University of Manchester, UK (June-September 2019) where he studied enzyme catalyzed biodegradation of polymers (polyethylene and polystyrene).

Dr Nnorom is interested in finding solutions to plastic waste crisis in Africa (http://blogs.biomedcentral.com/on-society/2019/11/01/how-can-the-plastic-waste-crises-be-solved-in-africa/ and https://twitter.com/OpenEnviron/status/1190242960090304513).

Dr Nnorom is a member of the Institute of Public Analysts of Nigeria (IPAN), European Mycological Association and the Chemical Society of Nigeria (CSN). He was the pioneer Public Relations officer (PRO) of the Abia State Branch of CSN (2015-2017).
