Valentin Alekseevich Borodulya (b. 10.10.1937, Kopys, Orsha district, Vitebsk region - 24.12.2020), thermal power engineer. Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (2000), Doctor of Engineering Sciences (1987), Professor (1989).
Developed a scientific direction on heat and mass transfer in dispersed systems such as weighted (fluidized, boiling, circulating) layer. Completed a set of research and development to create highly efficient heat and power and chemical technologies, including for environmentally friendly combustion and thermal processing of low-grade fuels and other local energy resources, which were the basis for creating a number of promising energy water-heating and steam automated boiler installations for steam and heat supply with thermal power 0.25-3.0 MW for various types of fuels with increased efficiency, lower metal consumption and improved ecological characteristics.
Author of more than 200 scientific papers, incl. 4 monographs, 60 inventions and patents.
The State Prize of the Republic of Belarus in the field of science and technology in 2002 for the development of scientific foundations, the creation and introduction of new energy efficient heat and mass transfer technologies and equipment for the energy complex and other sectors of the national economy of the Republic of Belarus. Prize named after academician A.V. Lykov in 2005 of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus for the series of works "Heat and Mass Transfer in Inhomogeneous Media with Allowance for Hydrodynamics, Phase and Chemical Transformations".
Awarded with medals, an honorary sign "Inventor of the USSR" (1987), a gold medal of the Belarusian Academy of Engineering (2003) for achievements in the development of science and technology.
