"Cleaner production for liveable cities" was the topic of a SWITCH-Asia Networking Event held in Kunming, China, on 15 - 18 June 2014. The SWITCH-Asia Programme co-finances more than 20 grant projects in the areas of cleaner production and greening construction, among them the ACIDLOOP project.

The Kunming networking event brought these projects together for enabling the exchange of best practices developed in the projects. The ACIDLOOP project was one of the projects invited to present the project approach and results at the event.
