I am doing a Thesis project on Life Cycle Analysis of Energy Production from Food Waste through Anaerobic Digestion vs landfilling in Wollongong, Australia and am wondering what the best dataset would be for me to use? Thanks

If anaerobic digestion is the core process for treating food waste to generate energy, then you really need to develop your own local process. The performance of anaerobic digestion plants depends a lot on the composition of the inputs as well as the operating conditions. You might get some help from generic data but it will need to be tailored to local conditions.

Good luck
