Marshall Mendoff Works to Improve the Environment
Xyleco Eclectron Accelors
Marshall Mendoff - Climate Advances
Marshall Mendoff is an eccentric 80 year old amateur scientist who has worked to improve the environment. Mendoff was recently featured on ”60 Minutes”. He spent 15 years working long hours in a garage without a phone where he was inspired by the nearby Walden Pond in Massachusetts to clean up the environment. He was granted 300 patents during these years.
He found that sugar can be harvested from the cellulose of plant life. This is an inexpensive process and a clean way to create biofuels. He also had created a large number of other products in addition to fuel.
Marshall Medoff eventually founded Xyleco, a private corporation. He hired some well qualified scientist, and his board of directors includes George P. Shultz, Steven Chu and William Perry. Additionally, this growing company is hiring the people for the following positions according to their website:
- “Chemists, microbiologists, biochemists and physicists;
- Chemical, mechanical, electrical, controls, and process engineers; and
- Business professionals including accounting, finance, public relations, marketing, business development, supply chain, human resources and legal”

Marshall Mendoff’s Study Results
Mr. Mendoff worked numerous hours daily as he was inspired by natural forces. These include light, solar energy and the molecular structure of plant life. Eventually he was able to patent sustainable technologies that restructure biomass by changing plant cellulose into a new material.
Mendoff has patented sustainable technologies. This new material has a changed molecular structure. This new molecular structure is a sugar that provides building blocks inexpensively. The process requires ionizing radiation by using electron accelerators that break apart plant life, and it extracts the sugar.

Goals for the Xyleco Corporation
He uses non-food biomass waste, which is renewable, and it has an almost an unlimited source. He actually changes the molecular structure of plants. The electrons are used to restructure biomass feedstock to obtain sugar.
Other addition steps for processing include: “filtration, separation, hydrogenation, fermentation, distillation, catalytic conversion, evaporation and deionization.”
Prior to Mendoff’s discovery there had been centuries of scientific study that has failed to find a commercially viable way to create a sustainable resource for fuel. There has simply not been a way to commercially change the molecular structure of cellulose until now.

Products Made from Cellulose
Ethanol that is produced from this process is estimated to reduce greenhouse gases by approximately 70%. Additionally, these building blocks will produce intermediate and final products, which will provide inexpensive food, medication, clothing and household products. Mendoff has even made plastic silverware that is biodegradable in a very short period of time, which is certainly unlike the plastic silverware that is being so widely used.
Other Xyleco products include:
“Foods - Sweeteners, preservatives, additives, alcohols, sugars, polyols, organic acids, including natural sugar drawn in ratio
Animal Nutrition - Livestock feed, fertilizers, pesticides
Health and Nutrition - Cosmetics, detergents, plastics, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, medical-dental products, disinfectants
Materials - Sustainable, degradable plastics, food packaging, beverage bottles, fibers, fabrics, composites, compositions
Building and Construction - Paints, resins, siding, coatings, varnishes, plastics, carpeting, tubing, seals
Energy and Transportation - Liquid fuels, oxygenates, anti-freeze, corrosion inhibitors
Marshall Mendoff’s Natural Force technologies has provided a huge scientific breakthrough by using an unlimited, sustainable resource. The company is also working with collaborators on the global adoption of their new products. Xyleco patents now exceeds 5000. It seems there is no end to the new uses for cellulose sugar.
We Can Power the World with Algae
There are many other scientist in a variety of countries that are working to turn plants or algae in biofuels. Algae can be grown and provides 40 times more product per acre than traditional crops.
However, it is very expensive to development as it is difficult to remove algae from the water, and it is still costing $2-$3 dollars per gallon.
Xyleco has the ability to create biofuel that can reduce greenhouse gas significantly, and it can be processed at an inexpensive cost.
Watching Marshall Mendoff on “60 Minutes” was so interesting, and some of the interview is still available to watch online. Mendoff actually used a moonshine still to make alcohol or fuel for the automobiles.
On “60 Minutes” he got some of his fuel and put it into a truck, then Leslie Stahl drove. He showed her multiple items that are already developed and explained his 15 years he lived as a recluse.
