Organization

The Fabricated Geomembrane Institute (FGI) is a industry/academic consortium of organizations interested in, and involved with, fabricated geomembranes. The FGI is located at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

The FGI includes all fabricated geomembranes, i.e., all geomembranes that are seamed and folded in a factory, transported to a site, and deployed by unfolding the fabricated panel. The FGI is a nonprofit organization and is dedicated to advancing the use of fabricated geomembranes through education, research, and technology transfer.

The member organizations include domestic and international manufacturers, fabricators/installers, material and equipment suppliers, designers, consultants, QA organizations, testing laboratories, and resin and additive suppliers. The recently created FGI already has 54 member organizations. See the “Current Members” section of this website for current members arranged by membership category, which is linked to their respective home pages.

The FGI functions under the general oversight of an elected board of directors and the regular interaction with its members via monthly teleconferences which are announced on the website. The entire membership meets one to two times per year at industry conferences and/or FGI short courses and suggests research topics and guidance on the direction of the FGI.
