S. Osypenko is the founder of SPE “TEKMASH Institute” (http://tekmash.org). Together with his colleagues he has developed HTD-technology®, the hydrothermodynamic technology based on fluid turbulence due to the effects of hydromechanics. The company has produced more than 2000 equipment units which operate according to HTD-technology® in Ukraine, USA, Canada, Asia, South America, Europe.
S. Osypenko has more than 40 patents of Ukraine, Canada, USA, China, Europe.
