    The five buses sold last Oct-Nov 2016 went for $4500 each, which satisfied the reserve price. Note, the oldest in this new lot, above, still has a year to go before its tanks expire - which is clearly the reason Sacramento International Airport is selling them off (rather than go to the expense to replace the CNG tanks.)

      Kroger on the go
      A leading corporate true believer in “post-consumer” AD produce recycling is the Kroger Co., the biggest supermarket chain in the U.S. and one of the world’s largest retailers – 2,424 supermarkets and multi-department stores in 31 states under dozens of local banners (e.g., Ralphs, Food 4 Less, City Market, etc.). Kroger trucks leftover produce back to its California distribution warehouse on returning delivery trucks. An onsite anaerobic digester processes more than 55,000 tons of food waste a year, providing about 20 percent of the facility’s energy. Kroger is looking at adding similar systems to other distribution centers.

      The Kroger Recovery System uses a sophisticated process to convert the carbon in organic material into a renewable source of methane. High-rate AD technology, from Boston-based FEED Resource Recovery Inc., generates methane-rich biogas, clean effluent and high concentrate fertilizer—all within a compact, modular footprint. Interchangeable modules give Kroger the option to use biogas as fuel for onsite boilers, natural gas trucks, or combined heat and power (CHP) units. Kroger says the biogas system, which began operations in May 2013, will pay for itself within five years.
