This paper presents an overview of synthetic liners, called flexible membrane liners (FMLs), as used in the containment of solid wastes and their leachates in landfills. Details of FML manufacturing and properties are presented. This is followed by methods to evaluate chemical compatibility, elements of FML design, and various construction details. A series of topics for further research and development concludes the paper.
