Happy Friday BESTSers,

           Food waste to biogas is an energy and waste management 
solution for all corners of the globe.  This article discusses a 
pilot plant to produce biogas from food waste in Australia.  
Anaerobic digestion is a great candidate for Australia due to the 
sparse development where centralized landfill collection and 
energy production can be more difficult.  Local digesters set up 
in small communities could handle this waste and produce biogas 
without having to truck the waste to a centralized location.  The 
dry climate also makes digestion appealing where composting may be 
more difficult.  It's exciting to see that this technology is 
being developed on almost all the continents (Antarctica, we're 
looking at you).
