Jens Wirth (ICA Bremen), expert in manual classing of cotton, will oversee the manual classing sessions. Speaking on this, he said “It’s essential to remember that a substantial portion of traded goods relies on manual classing, and typically only highly industrialized countries possess sufficient capacities for instrumental testing methods.’’ He also mentioned, “It was particularly gratifying during the last training to witness significant progress within a few days, as participants could successfully attribute various qualities to international cotton standards.”


Machine Cotton Testing

Axel Drieling

The HVI training for machine cotton testing will be conducted by the highly esteemed expert, Axel Drieling (FIBRE), who brings a wealth of experience in the field as Senior Manager Cotton. Participants can expect to gain in-depth knowledge about HVI technology and its applications in the cotton industry.
