Capabilities and Services

Frontline’s seasoned and experienced team provides full-service engineering, from feasibility to detailed, to our own biomass gasification projects as well as other projects. At Frontline, we only hire the best engineers and provide them with state-of-the-art tools and resources to accomplish our projects.

Our Pilot Facilities

Frontline knows that understanding is only demonstrated through rigorous testing. That is why our pilot facilities in Nevada, Iowa, can test virtually every new aspect of a plant design. The facilities have fully integrated features that allow most any feedstock to be processed into finished products like renewable natural gas, renewable hydrogen, or renewable chemicals. Our pilot facilities are complemented with laboratory analysis capabilities at Frontline and at Iowa State University. All of these capabilities come together to allow Frontline to perfect engineering solutions before implementing them at a commercial scale.
