Where does the salt end up after seawater is desalinated?

    At times, table salt arises as a byproduct of desalination. Seawater’s salt can also end up on certain surfaces of a desalination plant – usually, inside specific pipes or tubes. This is known as “scaling”.

    The byproduct of desalination plants tends to be a supersaturated brackish solution that is mostly salt. The disposal of this material is a matter of great concern to everyone involved in this process. Not only can it be as expensive as the initial desalination conversion itself, but doing it improperly can be detrimental to the environment.

    Here are some ways to dispose of the concentrated discharge: “surface water discharge, sewer discharge, deep well injection, evaporation ponds, infiltration basins, and irrigation.” Note that the most popular way to dispose of it is by injecting it into surface waters, an inviable solution for inland desalination plants. They are trying to come up with some way to turn the loss into a gain. Somehow extracting salts and chemicals that are actually useful and that can be sold.
