Spinners Seminar: The Proper Way of Handling Contaminations in Cotton

Spinners Seminar as Part of the International Cotton Conference 2018 in Bremen
The Proper Way of Handling Contaminations in Cotton

The Bremen Fibre Institute e. V. (FIBRE) and the Bremen Cotton Exchange are organising a Spinners Seminar about the handling of cotton contaminations as an additional professional event in the context of the International Cotton Conference Bremen. It will be carried out in close cooperation with the Industrieverband Veredlung, Garne, Gewebe und Technische Textilien (IVGT) and the International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF) and with the support of the German Institutes for Textile and Fibre Research Denkendorf (DITF).

The Spinners Seminar will deal with, among others, the following key questions in short lectures, contextual input and especially in discussions between the participants:

  • What types of contamination exist and how can they be characterised?
  • Causes of contamination – how and at what cost can they be avoided?
  • How do the impurities affect the price of cotton?
  • What are the requirements of the different steps of the textile industry?
  • What cleaning options are there in spinning and what are their advantages and disadvantages?
  • What are the possibilities for systematically controlling contaminations along the various process steps in the spinning mill?
  • What new machine tools are there for processing contaminated cotton and maintaining spinning stability?
  • How do you deal economically with contaminations?

The seminar will be jointly moderated by Thomas Goller, managing director Hoftex, and Jörg Hehl, division manager Staple Fibre Technologies, DITF Denkendorf.

Representatives from internationally respected companies and research institutes will actively contribute to the seminar with lectures and further input. Among them are, on the part of companies, CSIRO Manufacturing, Australia, Mesdan S.p.A., Italy, Saurer Schlafhorst, Textechno, and Trützschler, Germany, and Uster Technologies, Switzerland. The part of research is represented by, e. g., Cotton Incorporated, the Agricultural Marketing and the Agricultural Research Service at the US Ministry of Agriculture, USA and the Nazilli Cotton Research Institute, Turkey.

The Spinners Seminar can be attended by all interested parties independently of the conference. Journalists are cordially invited, too. Formless advance registration is requested via e-mail to the Bremen Fibre Institute e. V. for the attention of Mr Axel Drieling at conference@faserinstitut.de.
