Validation of an industrial process to manufacture

isosorbide bis(methyl carbonate) at pilot level


01 June 2018 – 31 May 2021


Isosorbide is a mainly bio-based chemical with the potential to help manufacture a range of products, many of which currently rely on fossil-based raw materials. It has a number of applications in packaging, coating, printing and even healthcare, and shows particular promise in making parts for PC manufacturing.

The VIPRISCAR project aims to improve production methods and demonstrate, through proof of process, the added value it can bring in three existing high-volume sectors - automotive and furniture, hot melt adhesives and biomedical applications.


This project has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 790440”
