"Listening to the professional explanation of EFS experts from Cotton Incorporated and watching the vivid demonstration of the system operation, there was great interest overall by the attendees, with several companies pursuing the possibility of licensing the EFS system to integrate it into their current fiber management procedures," said Charles Chewning, vice president, Fiber Management Research, Cotton Incorporated.
Shuibo Xu, deputy director, China Fiber Inspection Bureau (CFIB); Xiaoxin Yu, director, Cotton Inspection Division, CFIB; James L. Knowlton, US Department of Agriculture's Cotton Program; and Leo Yung, director, Central Textile (HK) Ltd., were among the speakers at the conference.
