RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)


If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)


   (a) The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;
x   (b) The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, 11-K, Form N-SAR or From N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report of transition report on Form 10-Q, or portion thereof will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and

State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.


The quarterly report of Sino Clean Energy Inc. (the “Company”) on Form 10-Q could not be filed within the prescribed time period due to the fact that the Company was unable to finalize its financial results as well as the disclosure requirements of Form 10-Q without unreasonable expense or effort. As a result, the Company could not solicit and obtain the necessary review of the Form 10-Q and signatures thereto in a timely fashion prior to the due date of the report. 




(1)    Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this notification 
    Mitchell S. Nussbaum, Esq.    212    407-4159 
    (Name)    (Area Code)    (Telephone Number) 
(2)    Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months (or for such shorter) period that the registrant was required to file such reports) been filed? If answer is no, identify report(s).  x Yes ¨ No 


(3)  Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?  x Yes ¨ No 
  If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.   
  Due to a court order forcing the closure in May 2012 of one of the Company’s production facilities in Dongguan City, Guangdong Province, China, the Company anticipates that its results of operations for the period ended June 30, 2012 will differ significantly from to the corresponding period ended June 30, 2011. The Company is appealing the court order and is still evaluating the scope of the issue to determine the quantitative impact that the plant closure and circumstances surrounding such closure may have on the Company’s financial results.
