- Education to engineers and engineering students who learn to specify and design a variety of geomembrane material types based on their particular design criteria and project requirements. The idea is that the best product for the application is chosen for each project. We provide education through technical papers on our website library and through market and regionally driven short courses.
- Research and lab testing is conducted by FGI member organizations in partnership with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The UIUC assists FGI with fabricated geomembrane focused research and technical engineering support in return for research funding.
- Technical Papers are regularly produced to provide guidance for installers regarding specifications and proper installation techniques.
- Internships offer participating organizations with a hands-on approach to educating and developing future industry leaders with a practical knowledge base.
My goal as FGI President throughout the two year term is to bring a new energy to the group, while continuously adding value to our membership and the fabricated geomembrane industry. I thank you for the opportunity to serve as the FGI President, and I invite you to become an active member as we advance this mission.
Also please sign up today for our emails to receive information regarding new valuable content and upcoming events. Also my personal promise to you is the FGI will not share your email address or overload your inbox with too many emails.
