Item 5.02     Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On September 5, 2011, Sino Clean Energy Inc. (the “Company”) received notification from Mr. Brock Silvers that effective immediately, he resigned as a  member of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company.  At the time of his resignation, Mr. Silvers also served as a member of the Board’s Audit Committee. There were no disagreements between Mr. Silvers and the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices which resulted in his resignation.
A copy of Mr. Silvers’ resignation letter, dated September 5, 2011, is included with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 17.1.  Mr. Silver’s resignation letter states, among other things, that at a meeting of the Board of Directors on August 19, 2011, his motion regarding the formation of a special committee and the immediate commencement of an investigation into the allegations made against the Company in two reports published in April 2011, did not receive Board support.  Mr. Silvers cites the failure to pass this motion as the reason for his resignation.
The Company disagrees with Mr. Silvers’ statement that the commencement of an independent investigation did not receive support from the Board.  At the August Board meeting, the Board agreed that it was in favor of an investigation, but requested an adjournment of the meeting until September 7, 2011 to allow the members time to consider and determine the appropriate timing to launch an investigation, as well as to consider the manner in which an investigation should be conducted. The Company has provided Mr. Silvers with a copy of the foregoing disclosures relating to his resignation and requested Mr. Silvers to furnish the Company with a letter stating whether he agrees with the statements relating to his resignation. When the Company receives a copy of such letter, it will file an amendment to this Current Report on Form 8-K with such letter within two business days of receipt.
