The authors regret that two of the photos presented in this article do not provide a true representation of the lithium recovery technologies currently being used by the companies referenced. In particular, the photos in the Fig. 10b and c and the corresponding content regarding the two industrial-scale units mentioned in the third and fifth paragraphs in Section 5.2 should be updated as described below. In particular: 1 The photos in Fig. 10b and c in Section 5.2 should be replaced with those shown in Fig. 10b and c below.2 The original sentences in the third paragraph in Section 5.2 should be changed to:“Encouragingly, an industrial-scale battery-like electrosorption system has been constructed and operated by Centra South University in China (Fig. 10b). This system showed good performance for high Mg/Li and high Na/Li ratio brines with stable Li adsorption capacity above 25 mg L−1 and 98% coulombic efficiency after 1000 cycles (Xu et al., 2022).” 3 The sentence in the fifth paragraph in Section 5.2 should be revised as follows:“Indeed, a hybrid plant equipped with ED and NF was constructed at East Taijinar salt-lake in China in 2019 and now, reportedly, has an annual productivity of 10,000 tonnes Li2CO3 (99.6% purity) (Fig. 10c) (Qinghai Institute of Salt Lakes Chinese Academy of Sciences, 2017).” 4 The following references in the published article, i.e.Central South Lithium Company Limited 2021. < http://www.zhongnanlithium.com/products >, accessed on May 30, 2021.
