Mr. Pasin founded InTech Environmental Canada Corp in 2004 to compete and distribute green, benzene free, solvents for the parts-washing business. In 2010, InTech developed its own eco-friendly, green solvents for parts washing. In 2011, at the request of a customer, InTech began development of a VOC exempt replacement for Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) which took over 2.5 years to develop. The ground breaking research and development led Mr. Pasin and his team to also develop safe, effective, VOC exempt alternatives for Xylene, Toluene, Acetone and Styrene.
