DOWNLOAD NEWEST WEBINAR: Effect of Elevated Temperatures on Geosynthetics - Presented by Dr. Timothy Stark, University of Illinois

Dedicated to advancing the use of fabricated geomembranes through education, research, and technology transfer.

WHY?
Factory fabrication reduces field welding, reduces installation time and costs, allows modular construction and provides consistent seam and liner quality.

Fabricated Geomembrane Institute
Internship Program

The FGI is already working on their 2019 Summer Internship Program and hopes to see it expand even further.  The internship program has been a great assistance to the FGI research activities at the UIUC because the interns return with hands-on experience of the testing, installation, and quality control aspects of geomembranes.
