Background

For more than a decade, the University of Illinois (UI) has hosted the PVC Geomembrane Institute (PGI). The UI assisted engineers in designing, testing, specifying, and installing PVC geomembranes for water, mining, and environmental applications. The UI recently expanded the PGI to include all geomembranes that can be factory fabricated. Factory fabrication increases liner quality, reduces field welding, reduces installation time and costs, and provides consistent seam quality. The Fabricated Geomembrane Institute (FGI) is a nonprofit organization and is dedicated to advancing the use of fabricated geomembranes through education, research, and technology transfer.
