LOMARTOV is an environmental engineering company, specialized in supporting R&D, industrial and technology-based projects with a multidisciplinary approach. We have a validated experience in technology transfer, coaching and assessment, supporting both the upscaling and exploitation phase of innovative industrial and experimental projects, and especially the assessment of the environmental, economic and social impacts of novel technology-based solutions, through Life Cycle Assessment approach, circular economy modeling, and methods from the social, economic and engineering sciences.

Our main goal is to support companies and innovative projects becoming more sustainable, mitigating and balancing their daily impact on our planet and resources, ensuring at the same time a safe and successful market uptake of innovative technologies, with a high impact potential for our economies and societies.
