Desalination plants are used to supply high quality water to the population. Although, the main problem of this process is the high quantity of reverse osmosis desalination brines (RODB) that are produced, which are disposed into the sea generating environmental impacts in the reception points such as diminishing the amount of flora and creating salinity, temperature and alkalinity gradients. In the brines, contaminants concentration is higher than in the feed furthermore, the biodiversity of th...
