The current database is the backbone of the research by Angouria-Tsorochidou and Thomsen (2020) “The effect of the collection system on biowaste quality and a modelling framework to evaluate organic waste-derived fertilizers” Elisavet Angouria-Tsorochidou1, 2 and Marianne Thomsen1, 2*. The database consists of two data sets, i) quality data of source-separated organic fraction of municipal solid waste (SS-OFMSW) [column C:CN] and ii) quality data of mechanically separated organic fraction of municipal solid waste (MS-OFMSW) from mixed collected residual waste [column CP:DY.] The goal of this database is to present aggregated data on biowaste quality for the ease of future research on circular bio-economy. The database is given on the “Data” tab. It includes 111 cases (row 1) and consists of 55 registered parameters (column A). The references for each case is given in row 58 for all 111 cases while the bibliographic form is given in the “Bibliography” tab in detail. The authors suggest that before the utilization of each case, the users should refer to the original data paper for further information, as well as, citing the original reference. The data included in the database are transformed into uniform units to allow for comparison. The “Memorandum” tab includes further information for the inserted data. 1 Research Group on Eco-Industrial System Analysis, Department of Environmental Science, Aarhus University, Frederiksborgvej 399, Postboks 358, DK-4000, Roskilde, Denmark 2 Aarhus University Centre for Circular Bioeconomy *Corresponding Author email: The research was performed as part of the Horizon 2020 project DECISIVE (Decentralised valorisation of biowaste) under grant agreement N° 689229.
