The Scientific Research Institute of Technological Progress (SRI TP) was established as a corporate institution for scientific applied research and engineering developments for members of an association “TORtec GROUP”. The main objective of the Institute is the development of the complex of vortex (gas-dynamic) resonance TOR-technologies for the disintegration of substances, mechanoactivation and mechanochemical nontermic synthesis of materials, as well as hardware in the form of laboratory, experimental and industrial installations under the conditional name “TORNADO”.

The long-term work of our scientists and engineers led by a member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Doctor of Physical Sciences, Viktor Shostak, on a complex of technical knowledge and know-how allowed to substantiate and develop new promising directions in various fields of science: in chemistry of solid material – methods of mechanochemical activation and regulating the reactivity; in inorganic and organic chemistry – fundamentally new, non-thermal methods of synthesis; in materiology – the creation of new methods for obtaining materials with new and prescribed properties, methods for the functionalization of nanostructures, methods for obtaining nanoscale particles and their use for modifying polymer materials; in the enrichment processes – “dry” ways of enrichment of mining rocks and technogenic accumulations, methods for disclosing intergrowths of crystals and enrichment of refractory rocks; in catalysis – to realize fundamentally new catalytic processes; in various industrial  technologies – to create new contactless grinding-activating devices and to show their advantages over the well-known conventional machines, based on mechanics. 

These and some other areas will contribute to progress in various fields of science and technology.
