can we use the salt from desalination plants for cooking?

    No, brine (concentrated salt mixture) used for preserving meats and such is water with table salt put into it. However, brine from desalination plants is salt leftover after taking fresh water out of it, which has a lot of other ocean water and pre-treatment chemicals in it, so would have to be purified (costly) before it is ready for consumption. The Clean Ocean Foundation describes the contents of brine to, “contain residual chemicals from the pretreatment process, heavy metals from corrosion [from pipes] or intermittently used cleaning agent.”
