What happens to the salt from seawater during desalination - is it harming the environment?

Our desalination plants meet stringent environmental protection criteria and are designed to have minimal impact on the surrounding environment.

We have 2 plants, both located near the open ocean. Due to the high energy swell, the concentrated seawater discharged during the process mixes very quickly with the surrounding seawater. The offshore discharge and intake pipelines are designed and located to minimise any effects on sensitive marine habitats, such as seagrasses and reef systems.
