OxEon Energy in CompanyWeek

As director of alternate fuels and energy systems at the Idaho National Laboratory, Frost collaborated with his OxEon Energy co-founders, Dr. S. Elango Elangovan and Joseph Hartvigsen, on projects involving solid oxide on and off for three decades. "We've been working together since the late '90s in one way or another," says Frost.

The trio saw an opportunity to commercialize some technology and launched OxEon Energy with Frost as CEO, Hartvigsen as VP of engineering, and Elangovan as VP of development.

Essentially, that technology uses anaerobic digester gas to produce methane and carbon dioxide, separates the streams, and then splits methane into carbon monoxide and hydrogen, which is in turn used to produce synthetic diesel.
