He has a number of copyright certificates for inventions, innovation proposals, scientific papers.
Thanks to him, the company created and successfully operated by the normative control service, developed technical conditions for road construction materials, regulations of the quality control department of Ministry of Road Construction (MRC), published collections of inventions implemented in MRC of USSR.
Vasyl VOLODKO (95), veteran of war, PhD, Senior Researcher.
A living legend of road sciences during the Soviet Union period.
During the Great War, in 1943 he was sent to Nazi Germany for forced labor in the Saar mines, and then got into the Dachau concentration camp. In 1945 he was released and returned home. 7 years later he was graduated from Lviv Polytechnical Institute.
After the end of war he worked as the Head of production and technical department, Chief engineer. In 1959 he was graduated from the Academy of Sciences of the Kazakh SSR, worked in the Kazakh branch of SoyuzdorNDI. In 1964 he defended his obtained the degree of cPhD in Technical sciences. The results of his dissertation had practical application in the construction of virgin lands.
From 1968 to 1999 he worked in “DerzhdorNDI” SE as a Senior Researcher, Head of the laboratory, Head of the department of road construction from industrial wastes, a Leading researcher. He has a number of inventions, numerous scientific works.
One of the main achievements of V. Volodko is the solution of the problem of industrial wastes use in road construction. According to his developments, large amounts of industrial wastes were used, in particular, removal of ash from heat energy stations, metallurgical slag, wastes from cement production and the coal industry.
Vasyl Volodko was a pioneer in the development and use of tar and other coal binders modified by polymers in road construction practice. Under his leadership and direct participation, the cement-organic mineral mixtures were developed, which are still used today.
At that times the activity of the Department under the leadership of V. Volodko was repeatedly awarded by diplomas and medals during the Exhibitions of Economic Achievements.
