[Gills Onions] The nation’s largest processor of fresh onions, will debut today an anaerobic digester system at its Oxnard, California location, whereby 100% of its onion waste and juice is transformed into electricity, heat and cattle feed.

Wow. No waste. Thus, they’re turning an expense (trucking away the waste) into a new source of income. And saving $700,000 a year in electricity costs. This is how cleantech and renewable energy will really become mainstream. When companies see financial reasons for doing so.
