It probably depends on the company. I know that some take the concentrated brine and process it into salt that we can use–usually referred to as sea salt. It is typically marketed as a “lower sodium” salt, though there is no basis for this claim.
The remaining salt from the desalination process is disposed of in a myriad of ways. There can several environmental concerns when disposing of the remaining salt. If the salt is dumped back into a coastal area (such as an estuary), it can pose a dire threat to marine life, which can not survive in extremely brackish water. The remaining amount of boron present in the discharge water can also be an environmental concern.
