The firm SABO founded in 1845 and situated in Manno Tessin is the present Swiss market leader for bio and special cooking oils. The processing energy of 11,600 MWh is generated by a steam and thermal oil boiler. A further gas heating boiler serves for heating the building. Due to tighter limits on emissions, the facility had to be completely restructured in 2006.
