About Dave Pasin

Mr. Pasin entered the environmentally-friendly solvents business in 2004 by distributing green, benzene-free solvents to the parts-washing industry. In 2010, Mr. Pasin developed his own environmentally-friendly solvents for parts washing. In 2011, at the request of a customer, he began development of a replacement for Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) which did not emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). The ground-breaking research and development led Mr. Pasin and his team to also develop safe, effective, VOC-compliant alternatives for Xylene, Toluene, Acetone, heptane, hexane, and mineral spirits. Previously, Mr. Pasin was President of a progressive paint, coating and wood treatment product manufacturing company for many years. His industry experience has been key to penetrating the many customers who are now adopting TBF’s green solvents. Mr. Pasin is active with community service clubs.

TBF Environmental Introduces VOC-Compliant Alternative to Heptane
SCAQMD Certifies BerdeSol™ as a Clean Air Solvent

VANCOUVER, BC (January 11, 2016) – TBF Environmental Technology Inc., a world leader in the development of environmentally-friendly industrial solvents, announced today that BerdeSol – the company’s latest Volatile Organic Content (VOC)-compliant alternative – is now commercially available. This is the third of three major announcements from TBF in recent months, who late last year, also released two other industry-changing VOC-compliant alternatives available: ShiraSol™ and KradaSol™.

ShiraSol – A Breakthrough Safe, Green, Versatile, Zero VOC Solvent to Replace Mineral Spirits and Other Slow Evaporating Solvents. | The Green Solvents Show #004

ShiraSol replaces slow evaporating and toxic solvents like mineral spirits, white spirits, and paint thinners. It has better solvency and an evaporation rate similar to mineral spirits. ShiraSol may work as a primary or co-solvent in aliphatic, aromatic and ketone systems.

TBF Develops ZemaSol™, a Widely Applicable, Safer and VOC-compliant Solvent| The Green Solvents Show #003

ZemaSol™ is a very effective and efficient solvent alternative for xylene, Parachlorobenzotrifluoride (PCBTF), Tertiary Butyl Acetate (TBAc) or toluene. A multi-purpose and cost-effective solvent, ZemaSol™ is widely used in industrial cleaning and formulations for epoxies, urethanes, alkyds, inks, and adhesives.

TBF Develops Safer, Non-polluting Solvents | The Green Solvents Show #002

TBF has developed alternative solvents which emit very low or zero levels of VOCs and are considered VOC-compliant, non-HAPs, do not create or deplete ozone, and are less toxic. TBF solvents, however, perform as well or better as the solvents they replace in most applications.

The Story Behind TBF Environmental – Developing new VOC Compliant Solvents Safe for the Environment | The Green Solvents Show #001

Many solvents used in industry contain volatile organic compounds. When emitted to the atmosphere, VOCs contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone which produces smog. VOCs are also harmful to human health. The EPA has introduced maximum VOC content levels for hundreds of products to limit the emission of VOCs. TBF Environmental develops industrial solvents which perform well in a wide range of applications, but which contain zero or very small levels of VOCs. Companies manufacturing products using solvents can meet the VOC regulations and reduce the risk to health and safety while maintaining solvent performance.
