Dear Jorge,
   I would recommend Pro-Par from Anatech, Shandon's Xylene substitute or Stat Lab's xylene substitute.  They are all aliphatic hydrocarbons.  I wouldn't recommend the limonene based ones as they are sensitizers like xylene.

Hi, everyone in the field of histotechnology.

Our histology lab is looking for a xylene substitute that is easy to
dispose of, great for diparaffinization, dihydration, coverslipping and
most important; nonhazardous to our health. 
If anyone is using a xylene substitute, please give us your input.
We greatly appreciate your commends and recomendation.
