This innovative wastewater treatment plant will have the capacity to treat the wastewater of 26 municipalities, equivalent to 680,000 inhabitants. It integrates advanced technologies to reuse treated water, eliminate microplastics, and produce renewable energies such as biomethane and solar energy.

Haliotis 2 will also be able to recycle 5 million cubic meters of water per year, meeting Nice’s irrigation and cleaning needs. In terms of energy performance, the plant will produce four times more energy than it currently consumes, contributing to the decarbonization of the territory.

This project is fully in line with the Metropolis’ Climate Plan, aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
