This article presents raw data of volumetric biogas and its methane composition obtained from anaerobic digestion experiments conducted under lab scale condition. A commercial biogas industry in Trondheim (Norway) developed interest in using olive cake from a Danish farm (Combineering A/S, Birkerød, Denmark) as a substrate for its existing biogas plant. Moreover, local cattle farm owners wanted to evaluate the possibility of investing on a biogas plant using cattle manure generated on their own farmlands. Accordingly, an evaluation of biogas production potential of these substrates was performed and the obtained data in brief are presented.
