To investigate and develop possible alternatives for the management and valorization of brines of desalination plants by means of innovative solutions, in an intensive way.


- Development of a system of recovery and valorization of salts from brines.
- Study of the possible industrial applications of brine or its by-products.
- Study of the technical and economic feasibility of zero-discharge systems based on evaporation-crystallization.
- Study of the feasibility of injecting brine into deep aquifers.
- Study of the different parameters and effects on the dilution of brine in the sea and comparison with the existing mathematical models.
