RORO (Recycling Organisation Research Opportunities)

Anthias Consulting is very proud to support RORO (Recycling Organisation Research Opportunities). Anthias consultant Dr Diane Turner is trustee and Dr Giles Edwards is Technical Director & Founder Trustee for the charity.

The charity works to connect redundant analytical instrumentation with academic institutions in the developing world.

In September 2015, Dr Diane Turner and Dr Imran Janmohamed from Anthias Consulting worked with The Open University to configure and send a Gas Chromatograph Flame Ionization Detector (GC-FID) to the National University of Mongolia for air pollution analysis. Read the full story on International Labmate, which follows the journey from the initial assesment of what was needed, through to acquiring, testing, shipping and installation of the instrumentation.

RORO installed donated equipment that was then used for training at the first LC-MS workshop facilitated by the Royal Society of Chemistry Pan Africa Chemistry Network (PACN) at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) in Nairobi, Kenya, in September 2017. Dr Giles Edwards wrote the course materials as part of his work for Anthias Consulting and delivered the training with Prof Anthony Gachanja from JKUAT. Read more about the training here.
