The Research Institute "UkrkomunNDIprogres" came into being in 1967, when, by order to that effect issued by the Minister of Housing and Communal Facilities of Ukraine, the Experimental Design and Research Work Department was created in the Design Institute "Ukrdiprokomunbud", which afterwards was transformed into a scientific division of the Research Institute "UkrkomunNDIproject" and, in 1991, in a separate institute.

During 30 years of work, the Institute has performed scientific developments on the optimization of water distribution in water supply networks; determination of gas contamination of sewerage systems and their deodorization; optimization of processes of waste water treatment and sludge processing; development of facilities intended for improving drinking water quality, municipal refuse processing and disinfecting, etc. The results of the above developments have been introduced in most cities of Ukraine, as well as in Moscow, Sankt-Petersburg, Yekaterinburg Minsk, Tbilisi, Sochi, Cherkessk, and other CIS cities.

The scientific developments of the Institute have received the USSR Cabinet of Ministers' Prize, 37 medals, Honorary Diplomas and various degree diplomas of the Exhibitions of National Economy Achievements of the USSR and UkrSSR. The Institute's specialists have got 120 author's certificates and patents, have published hundreds of scientific works.
