Our History

In 1993, three partners combined their extensive experience in civil engineering, environmental construction, and product manufacturing to establish Environmental Fabrics, Inc. The founders’ diverse backgrounds positioned EFI to provide complete project capabilities, able to design, fabricate, and install geosynthetic products. For the first time, covers, liners and containment systems were available from one source to reduce air pollution, protect water sources, and improving customer processes.

Since its founding, EFI has continually uncovered opportunities to apply our deep expertise in geosynthetics and environmental construction to new challenges on a local and global scale. Utilizing EFI’s impermeable floating cover expertise, EFI has become a leading provider of biodigester solutions for the production and use of Biogas. Our dedication as Carolina sports fans led us to develop new applications for sustainable sports & recreation facilities. Such innovation has been our hallmark since inception and continues to guide our work today.
