We have had a similar problem lately, so we called Qiagen and were given
the following recepie for PE substitute:
10 mM tris-HCl pH7.5
100 mM NaCl
 70% EtOH
In my opinion, yields became lower. Others in a lab claim excellent yields. 
As for PB, to my knowledge it is not absolutely required (see protocol).

Good luck,
