I wantr to know how to remove Co2 produced in this process while remaining anarobic for the fermentation to occur. If i put a tube, will it bring back outside air into the system? Thanks,

run a tube from your container to inside a bucket of water is the quickest way

Get some home-brew kit (like frollard says). Your biggest problem will be removing the water, I assume this is for fuel?
Also be careful in you choice of food-waste.

The same way you do it with wine- You use a fluid gap system - Utilize a p-trap filled with liquid, such that the sealed system can bubble co2 out, but air can't get in...
