After getting his Master’s degree from UNESCO-IHE
in the Netherlands, Mr. Pazmiño started working as a site engineer in the oil Exploration and Production field, where his skills regarding effluents and solids control were put into practice. Due to the dangerous environment on the oil well platforms he experienced, Mr. Pazmiño became concerned for occupational health and thus developed his safety-consciousness.

Currently he serves as President of Earthtech Engineering Ltd. and is responsible for directing environmental management programs and control of solid and liquid waste generated from petroleum exploration activities.
