Notes to Financial Statements
(Unaudited)

NOTE 1: BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements of Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. (“Clean Coal”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto contained in Clean Coal’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited interim financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the financial position and the results of operations for the interim period presented herein. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year or for any future period. Notes to the financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosure contained in the audited financial statements for fiscal 2010 as reported in the Form 10K have been omitted.

RECLASSIFICATIONS

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to current period presentation.
 
FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

FASB ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. The provisions of ASC 820 were effective January 1, 2008.

As defined in ASC 820, fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (exit price). Clean Coal utilizes market data or assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, including assumptions about risk and the risks inherent in the inputs to the valuation technique. These inputs can be readily observable, market corroborated, or generally unobservable. Clean Coal classifies fair value balances based on the observability of those inputs. ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1 measurement) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3 measurement).

The three levels of the fair value hierarchy defined by ASC 820 are as follows:

Level 1 – Quoted prices are available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date. Active markets are those in which transactions for the asset or liability occur in sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis. Level 1 primarily consists of financial instruments such as exchange-traded derivatives, marketable securities and listed equities.

Level 2 – Pricing inputs are other than quoted prices in active markets included in level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reported date. Level 2 includes those financial instruments that are valued using models or other valuation methodologies. These models are primarily industry-standard models that consider various assumptions, including quoted forward prices for commodities, time value, volatility factors, and current market and contractual prices for the underlying instruments, as well as other relevant economic measures. Substantially all of these assumptions are observable in the marketplace throughout the full term of the instrument, can be derived from observable data or are supported by observable levels at which transactions are executed in the marketplace. Instruments in this category generally include non-exchange-traded derivatives such as commodity swaps, interest rate swaps, options and collars.

Level 3 – Pricing inputs include significant inputs that are generally less observable from objective sources. These inputs may be used with internally developed methodologies that result in management’s best estimate of fair value.

At September 30, 2011, Clean Coal did not have any instruments subject to ASC 320.

NOTE 2: GOING CONCERN
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis of accounting which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, liabilities, and commitments in the normal course of business. The accompanying financial statements do not reflect any adjustments that might result if the Clean Coal is unable to continue as a going concern. Clean Coal has an accumulated deficit and a working capital deficit as of September 30, 2011 with no significant revenues anticipated for the near term. Management believes Clean Coal will need to raise capital in order to operate over the next 12 months. As shown in the accompanying financial statements, Clean Coal has also incurred significant losses since inception. Clean Coal’s continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations on a timely basis and ultimately to attain profitability. Clean Coal has limited capital with which to pursue its business plan. There can be no assurance that Clean Coal’s future operations will be significant and profitable, or that Clean Coal will have sufficient resources to meet its objectives. These conditions raise substantial doubt as to Clean Coal’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management may pursue either debt or equity financing or a combination of both, in order to raise sufficient capital to meet Clean Coal’s financial requirements over the next twelve months and to fund its business plan. There is no assurance that management will be successful in raising additional funds.

NOTE 5: EQUITY TRANSACTIONS
 
Common Stock
 
On August 9, 2010 Clean Coal entered into an employment agreement with Robin Eves as President and Chief Executive Officer. Under the employment agreement, President and Chief Executive Officer is entitled to a stock bonus of 28,000,000 common shares. Under the terms of the employment agreement, the stock is to be awarded as follows: 50% of the shares to be exercisable at the signing of the agreement, and the balance of 50% exercisable after January 31, 2012, or on the accomplishment of a significant business objective as established by the Board of Directors. Clean Coal calculated the fair value of the award based upon the closing stock price on the grant date of August 9, 2010 and is expensing the award over the award periods. The total fair value of the award was determined to be $868,000. On August 5, 2011, Clean Coal accelerated the vesting of 10,000,000 of the common shares. The vesting of these shares was modified whereby the 10,000,000 shares were fully earned and issued on August 5, 2011. The remaining 4,000,000 common shares will be earned on January 31, 2012. Clean Coal fully expensed the fair value of the award associated with the 10,000,000 shares that were accelerated during the nine months ended September 30, 2011. A total of $580,044 was recognized as share-based compensation under this award for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. A total of 24,000,000 shares have been issued under the agreement and are shown as outstanding in the Statement of Stockholders’ Deficit. The unvested portion of the award of $56,489 will be recognized over the remaining award period through January 31, 2012.

On April 1, 2011 Clean Coal entered into an employment agreement with Ignacio Ponce De Leon as Chief Operating Officer. Under the employment agreement, the Chief Operating Officer is entitled to a stock bonus of 2,000,000 common shares. Under the terms of the employment agreement, the stock vests on January 1, 2012. Clean Coal calculated the fair value of the award based upon the closing stock price on the grant date of April 1, 2011 and is expensing the award over the vesting period. The total fair value of the award was determined to be $76,000. A total of $50,298 was recognized as share-based compensation under this award for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. As of September 30, 2011, no shares have been issued under the agreement. The unvested portion of the award of $25,702 will be recognized over the remaining vesting period through January 1, 2012.

On August 12, 2010, Clean Coal entered into a fifteen month strategic financial and consulting agreement with MMB Global Advisors. Under the terms of the agreement, MMB was to be awarded 12,000,000 restricted shares at the time of the contract signing with 15,000,000 additional shares to be awarded over the term of the contract (1 million shares per month). On June 1, 2010, Clean Coal amended the Advisory Agreement with MMB Global Advisors dated August 12, 2010 to reflect a reduction of four million shares. This Amendment reduced the total number of 27,000,000 shares originally awarded by this agreement, to 23,000,000 shares. As of the date of the amendment, 21,000,000 shares had vested under the agreement. The unvested balance of the remaining 2,000,000 shares will be earned over the remaining months of the agreement through November 2011. During the nine months ended September 30, 2011, a total of 6,333,332 common shares were issued and expensed at $176,200 under this agreement. The remaining 666,666 common shares will be issued and expensed through November 2011.

In addition to the shares described above, during the nine months ended September 30, 2011, Clean Coal issued an aggregate of 15,510,000 common shares for services valued at $441,825 and issued 17,359,078 common shares for $1,219,475 of debt and accrued interest.

Common Stock Options
 
On February 7, 2011, Clean Coal entered into an investor relations advisor agreement and granted the advisor 900,000 common stock options. The options are exercisable at $0.0264 per share, expire on February 7, 2016 and vest 75,000 options per month over one year. Clean Coal estimated the fair value of the options to be $20,647 using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The significant assumptions used in the model included the following: the closing price of Clean Coal’s common stock on the date of grant of $0.026, no expected dividend yield, expected volatility of 180.34%, risk free interest rate of 1.28% and an expected term of 2.77 years. On June, 8, 2011, the investor relations agreement was amended to reflect a lesser number of services, with a corresponding 50% reduction in monthly fees, a one-time share payment, and the elimination of all previous stock option provisions. Due to the stock options being cancelled, there was no expense recorded for these options. The one-time share payment represents 500,000 shares that were issued and valued at $13,200 and are included in the 15,510,000 shares disclosed above as issued for services.
 
On August 5, 2011, Clean Coal approved the issuance to Robin Eves of options to purchase 10,000,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $.03 per share. However, the option award is contingent on the Company’s adoption of a stock option and award plan intended to cover officers, directors, employees and consultants that will require a shareholders’ meeting to approve an increase in Clean Coal’s authorized capital.
 
NOTE 6: SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

In October 2011, Clean Coal entered into an exclusive consulting agreement with S.K. Grover of New Delhi, India, for the purpose of indentifying, pursuing, tendering and negotiating potential projects to deploy Clean Coal’s Pristine-M technology in India, Indonesia and the Philippines. For this exclusive representation, Clean Coal will issue to Mr. Grover 500,000 shares of our restricted common stock upon execution of the agreement, and an additional 500,000 shares of restricted common stock upon the signing of a Letter of Intent or similar document for the implementation of Clean Coal’s technology. The agreement is for an initial term of one year.

Overview
 
Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. (“We,” “Company” or “Clean Coal”) owns a patented technology that we believe will provide cleaner energy at low costs through the use of the world’s most abundant fossil fuel, coal. Our technology is designed to utilize controlled heat to extract and capture pollutants and moisture from low-rank coal, transforming it into a cleaner-burning, more energy-efficient fuel prior to combustion. Our proprietary coal cleaning process is designed to ensure that the carbon in coal maintains its structural integrity during the heating process while the volatile matter (polluting material) within the coal turns into a gaseous state and is removed from the coal. We have trade-marked the name “PRISTINE™” as a means of differentiating our processed product from the negative connotations generally associated with coal, and its traditional use. PRISTINE™ is applicable for a variety of applications, including coal-fired power stations, chemical byproduct extraction, and as a source fuel for coal-to-liquid technologies.

In September 2011, Clean Coal Technologies, Inc., filed for a second patent on a new technology known as Pristine M. The new technology is a moisture substitution technology that, owing to its superior product and economics, is expected to be highly successful in the moisture removal business globally.
 
Current or Pending Projects
 
Huamin Senior Fund Holding Group. On April 25, 2011, we signed an agreement with the Huamin Senior Fund Holding Group Co., Ltd. (“Huamin”), for our first technology license and royalty agreement (“TLA”) to build an initial clean coal facility with a capacity of 1.5 million tons in China. Under the agreement, Huamin will obtain funding for all infrastructure development, coal assets, administration, and technical resources. Huamin will contract directly with our engineering consultant, SAIC Energy, Environment & Infrastructure, LLC, “SEE&I”, (formerly Benham), a division of Science Applications International Corporation (“SAIC”), for the engineering design, procurement and construction of the new facility.
 
Under our agreement with Huamin, we will receive one-time license fees of $1,000,000 per million tons of production, and an ongoing royalty fee of a minimum of $1.00 for each ton of clean coal produced. Initial revenues will be $500,000 at the time of feasibility study approval, with an additional $500,000 ninety (90) days thereafter, and the final installment of $500,000 which will be payable ninety (90) days following Huamin’s acceptance of the plant’s production.  Subject to the success of the initial phase, Huamin will commit to an incremental production capacity of 5.0 million tons per annum. As this is a license/royalty agreement (as compared to a joint venture agreement), Huamin anticipates an accelerated approval process which should not exceed six months, particularly as the majority of the government requirements have previously been developed and accepted for our Inner Mongolia project.

 The current Exclusive Technology License Agreement was cancelled on October 12, 2011 at a meeting in New York with the Huamin Group and with the understanding that it will be replaced with a new Non Exclusive Technology License Agreement within the next 90 days.

Sino-Mongolia International Railroad Systems. On April 23, 2011, the existing Cooperative Joint Venture agreement with the Sino-Mongolia International Railroad Systems, Co. Ltd. of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, PRC (SMIRSC), was terminated. Following the transition of all permits and license agreements to a 100% wholly-owned local entity, (Inner Mongolia Nuomenhan Clean Coal Co., Ltd.,) the project will now move forward under a technology licensing and royalty agreement. The primary reason for this change was that we would no longer be faced with large capital obligations, and the challenges of managing a foreign entity that would imply a need to deploy our resources and staff into China.
 
License agreements also provide for up-front revenue, with an extended back-end royalty stream based on increasing production commitments under the TLA.

Concurrently with our decision to transition to a TLA, our previous CJV partner sold some 90% of his investment company to an individual, which by default becomes the principal owner of the new local entity, Sino-Mongolia International Investment Co., and our client. Sino Mongolia International Investment Co., now becomes a majority-owned subsidiary of a new holding company.
 
 We continue to work through a number of complex legal, administrative and documentation issues associated with the acquisition of Sino-Mongolia International Investment Co., and the transition of previously approved permits, etc. We have received excellent support from the U.S. Commerce Department in China and in Florida in this matter, and hope to complete the TLA agreement by the 4th quarter, 2011. The primary consideration for both parties is to avoid compromising the existing permits, license and lease agreements that have taken nearly 2 years to achieve.
 
Business Development Activities

We are in discussions with two major Indian conglomerates and potential partners that need to upgrade large volumes of coal in Indonesia to be exported to India.  Coal samples are being shipped to SAIC in Pittsburgh for tests using the Pristine-M technology.

We continue to progress in discussions with a company in the Philippines that owns producing coal mines and two power plants outside Manila.  The company has shipped coal to SAIC in Pittsburgh to be tested over the next two weeks.  Depending on the results of the tests, the Philippine company has indicated it desire to move into a contractual relationship with CCTI.

Consultant Activities
 
MMB Global Advisors has been involved in conducting due diligence on a potential partner in Kentucky, and through its associates, continues to look for commercial opportunities in India, China, Indonesia and Mongolia.

 MBA, Inc., a Tennessee-based consulting group, is continuing discussions with a large Tennessee utility as well as several South West utility companies that have expressed interest in deploying our technology.
 
Factors Affecting Results of Operations
 
Our operating expenses include the following:
 
 
· Consulting expenses, which consist primarily of amounts paid for technology development and design and engineering services;
 
· General and administrative expenses, which consist primarily of salaries, commissions and related benefits paid to our employees, as well as office and travel expenses;
 
· Research and development expenses, which consist primarily of equipment and materials used in the development and testing of our technology; and
 
· Legal and professional expenses, which consist primarily of amounts paid for patent protections, audit, disclosure, and reporting services.

Results of Operations
 
The following information should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes appearing elsewhere in this Report. We are a development stage company and have had no revenues from inception to date. We are presently in preliminary discussions with China, U.S. and India interests to license our technology, which, if successful, would realize short term revenue opportunities. However, no agreements have been negotiated or executed and we cannot predict when or if any agreements will be completed.
 
For the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2011 and September 30, 2010
 
Revenues
 
We have generated no revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and the same period in 2010 and do not anticipate initial license  revenues until approximately  the fourth quarter of 2011 or the first quarter of 2012,   and do not expect to receive any significant royalty fees for approximately 24 months thereafter.
 
Operating Expenses
 
Our operating expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 totaled $829,468 and $2,504,092, respectively, compared to $4,076,962 and $11,785,298 respectively, for the same periods in the prior year. The primary component of the operating expenses in both periods was for shares issued for services. The significant decrease in compensation expense for the 2011 fiscal period is due to the differences in share price and the number of shares issued.
 
We recorded stock-based compensation to our CEO and President of $289,104 and $580,044 respectively for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, compared to $2,864,094 and $6,628,415, respectively to our former CEO and President for the same period in the prior year. In addition, during the nine months ended September 30, 2011, we issued 450,000 shares to Davis Family Investments, an unrelated third party consultant, for public relations services valued at $11,655, issued 7,500,000 shares to CJ Douglas, a related business consultant valued at $194,250 for compensation, issued 2,000,000 shares to our Advisor to the Board of Directors, Ignacio Ponce de Leon, as a bonus valued at $51,800, issued 500,000 shares to Cooper Global Communications for Investor Relation services valued at $13,200, issued 60,000 to Russ Schleipman for consulting services valued $1,920, issued 6,333,332 common shares to MMB Global Advisors for consulting services valued at $176,200, issued 4,000,000 shares to Ignacio Ponce de Leon for service as our Chief Operating Officer valued at $152,000 and issued 1,000,000 shares to Al Knapp for consulting services valued at $17,000.
 
Other than the expense recorded for stock compensation during three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, operating expenses consisted of $328,644 and $786,855 respectively in general and administrative expenses. In the same periods in 2010, our operating expenses included $113,608 and $626,082, respectively in general and administrative expenses.
 
All Board of Directors’ cash fees have been accrued as of this date. Our CEO and President, Robin Eves, our Chief Operations Officer and Ignacio Ponce de Leon are not compensated for their participation on our Board.
 
Our CEO and President, Robin Eves has an employment agreement that provides for 14,000,000 restricted shares to be issued at contract signing, with a further 14,000,000 shares to be issued after a period of eighteen months, or following a significant contribution to the Company, as determined at the discretion of the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors authorized the issuance of 10,000,000 shares of the remaining 14,000,000 shares due to Robin Eves as of August 5, 2011. Along with the accelerated vesting of shares, Mr. Eves’ annual salary was raised to $375,000 for the period August 1, 2011 through July 31, 2012. The Board of Directors also approved the issuance to Mr. Eves of options to purchase 10,000,000 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $.03 per share. However, the options are contingent on the adoption of a stock option and award plan intended to cover officers, directors, employees and consultants that will require us to seek an increase in our authorized capital.  Our Chief Operations Officer, Ignacio Ponce de Leon’s employment agreement which was effective April 1, 2011, provides for 4,000,000 restricted shares to be issued at contract signing with a further 2,000,000 restricted shares to be exercised after January 1, 2012, predicated on the future availability of the additional  authorized shares required to meet this obligation.

Effective August 12, 2010, we entered into a fifteen month strategic financial and consulting agreement with MMB Global Advisors, an energy-related consulting firm with expertise in various emerging markets. Under the terms of the agreement, MMB will be awarded 12,000,000 restricted shares at time of contract signing, with the balance of 15,000,000 being payable over the term of the contract (1 million shares per month), or following a significant contribution to the Company, as determined at the discretion of the Board of Directors. With resources in India, China, Hong Kong, and the USA, MMB is assisting us in analyzing various corporate restructuring alternatives, and analyzing potential financial transactions according to the terms and conditions of our agreement. In this regard, MMB has undertaken certain activities on our behalf, including the following:

j)
assisting us in creating financial models and joint venture structures; and
k)
assisting us in negotiations related to a potential business combination or business transaction, as may be appropriate.
 
Effective June 1, 2010, we agreed with MMB to amend the Advisory Agreement with MMB to reflect a reduction of four million shares. This Amendment reduced the total number of 27,000,000 shares originally contemplated by this Agreement (27,000,000), to 23,000,000 shares. The residual balance of the 2,000,000 unvested shares outstanding at June 1, 2010 will be equally apportioned over the remaining months of the Agreement as earned.
 
Effective September 1, 2010, we appointed Ignacio Ponce de Leon as our Exclusive Representative for Latin America, in addition to his prior appointment as Senior Economic Advisor to our Board of Directors, which was effective August 25, 2010. During 2011, Mr. Ponce de Leon received a one-time compensation fee of 2,000,000 restricted shares for each of these appointments for a total of 4,000,000 shares.
 
Employees
 
As of September 30, 2011, we had two full-time executives, and one full-time administrative employee. President and CEO Robin Eves, and Chief Operations Officer, Ignacio Ponce de Leon have written employment agreements. Effective August, 2010, the Board of Directors appointed Dr. Mitch Shapiro to serve as the Company’s Secretary for which he will receive no additional compensation, other than that paid as a Director. Our administrative employee is at-will. Messrs. Eves and Ponce de Leon received no compensation for their participation on the Board of Directors.
 
We have an oral consulting agreement with C.J. Douglas, a shareholder who provides services that support our administrative and accounting functions on a month-to-month basis, at $20,000 per month. Prior to the appointment of Cooper Global Communications as our investor relations firm, Mr. Douglas had also provided this function to the Company.

The terms of the agreements described above were negotiated by and between the individuals and our Board of Directors based on the qualifications and requirements of each individual and the needs of the company; however, the negotiations may not be deemed to have been at arm’s length.

Net Income/Loss
 
For the three and nine  months ended September 30, 2011 we experienced net losses of $847,111 and $2,556,206, respectively, and $4,283,770 and $12,069,318, respectively for the same periods for the prior year. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 we incurred losses from operations of $829,468 and $2,504,092, respectively, and $4,076,962 and $11,785,298 for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2010, respectively. We incurred interest expense of $17,643 and $52,114, respectively, for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2011, and $101,558 and $179,760 for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2010, respectively.
 
We anticipate losses from operations will increase during the next twelve months due to anticipated increased payroll expenses as we add necessary staff and increases in legal and accounting expenses associated with maintaining a reporting company. We expect that we will continue to have net losses from operations for several years until revenues from operating facilities become sufficient to offset operating expenses, unless we are successful in the sale of licenses for our technology.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources

(1) Our Coral Springs lease term runs until December 31, 2011, at a minimum monthly rate of $3,383 per month for approximately 1,450 square feet. It is not anticipated that this lease will be renewed upon the expiry date at the end of 2011.
(2) Our New York lease runs untilDecember 31, 2011, however, is expected to be extended at the current rate of $1,850 per month.

 
SAIC Energy Environment & Infrastructure (SEE&I),our engineering consultant has tentatively estimated construction costs for each one million short ton coal complete cleaning facility of approximately $250 million (excluding land costs) or costs for a similar size Pristine-M-only facility of approximately $45-50 million (excluding land costs). We are in discussions with several interested parties who may fund some or all of the estimated costs but have no definitive agreements in place. Under the terms of our consulting agreement with SEE&I, we are obligated to pay to SEE&I a fee representing five percent of all gross revenues received by us from the sale of our technology, the operation of franchised plants utilizing the technology, or revenue received on any other basis that is related to the technology. This fee will remain in effect for a period of 15 years, commencing from the date that we receive our initial revenue stream from the Chinese or other operations. All intellectual property rights associated with new art developed by SEE&I remain our property, however SEE&I would have a “right to use” the intellectual property provided they are deployed in non-competitive projects.

We expect we will need $3,150,100 to sustain operations for the next twelve months. Therefore, based on our current operational costs and including the capital requirements for our project deployments, we estimate we will need a total of approximately $1,310,005 to fund the Company for the balance of 2011 and an additional $4,500,890 to continue for the following fiscal year (2012) or until the initial plant is up and running. At this filing date, we do not have commitments for funding but intend to seek sufficient debt or equity funding to meet both our capital contribution deadlines and funding sufficient for our operations. We are also actively pursuing technology license and royalty agreements in order to begin construction of other facilities without incurring the capital costs associated with the construction of future plants.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
We have not and do not have any relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, such as entities often referred to as structured finance or special purpose entities, which would have been established for the purpose of establishing off-balance sheet arrangements or other contractually narrow or limited purposes. Therefore, we do not believe we are exposed to any financing, liquidity, market or credit risk that could arise if we had engaged in such relationships.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

We are exposed to changes in prevailing market interest rates affecting the return on our investments but do not consider this interest rate market risk exposure to be material to our financial condition or results of operations. We invest primarily in United States Treasury instruments with short-term (less than one year) maturities. The carrying amount of these investments approximates fair value due to the short-term maturities. Under our current policies, we do not use derivative financial instruments, derivative commodity instruments or other financial instruments to manage our exposure to changes in interest rates or commodity prices.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

As of September 30, 2011, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer (the same person), of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Based on this evaluation, management concluded that our financial disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to our limited internal resources and lack of ability to have multiple levels of transaction review. We presently have only one officer and one employee. Inasmuch as there is no segregation of duties within the Company, there is no management oversight, no control documentation being produced, and no one to review control documentation if it was being produced.

There were no changes in disclosure controls and procedures that occurred during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially effect, our disclosure controls and procedures. We do not expect to implement any changes to our disclosure controls and procedures until there is a significant change in our operations or capital resources.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

Clean Coal Technologies, Inc., and our former Senior Managing Director, Douglas Hague, in addition to shareholder Larry Hunt and consultant CJ Douglas, were named as co-defendants in a lawsuit filed by a shareholder in the 15th Judicial Circuit Court in and for West Palm Beach County, Florida, Case No. 50 2010CA 028706XXXX MB on or about November 24, 2010. Plaintiff has not made a specific demand for damages; however, plaintiff has made a general demand for damages in order to meet the Court's jurisdictional limits, which is a standard disclosure. We vigorously defended this action that the Company and its attorneys regard as absolutely frivolous, baseless and without merit. On January 24, 2011 attorneys for the plaintiff agreed to the entry of an order dismissing their lawsuit, without prejudice, allowing them twenty days to file an Amended Complaint. Attorneys for the plaintiff filed an Amended Complaint on February 22, 2011 under the same case number. We will continue to vigorously defend the action and we do not believe that the action will be materially adverse to the company. Our attorneys have put the plaintiff’s counsel on notice of our intent to seek sanctions against both the plaintiff, and the plaintiff’s counsel pursuant to Florida Statute Sec.57.105. Further, we have moved to dismiss the action on the basis that the Plaintiff has procedurally, factually, and legally failed to state a cause of action up which relief can be granted. In the event that this case should be advanced, we believe that we have meritorious defenses to all claims; however, an adverse decision would materially and adversely impact us.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
 
We have no operating revenues yet and we have made no provision for any contingency, unexpected expenses or increases in costs that may arise.
 
We are a development stage company and have no revenues from operations, neither has the Company generated any funding through any form of private or public offering to use for operating expenses or research and development. Since inception, we have been able to cover our operating losses from debt and equity financing. These sources of funds may not be available to cover future operating losses. If we are not able to obtain adequate sources of funds to operate our business we may not be able to continue as a going concern.
 
Our business strategy and plans could be adversely affected in the event we need additional financing and are unable to obtain such funding when needed. It is possible that our available funds may not be sufficient to meet our operating expenses, development plans, and capital expenditures for the next twelve months. Insufficient funds may prevent us from implementing our business strategy or may require us to delay, scale back or eliminate certain opportunities for the commercialization of our technology. If we cannot obtain necessary funding, then we may be forced to cease operations.
 
We may experience delays in resolving unexpected technical issues arising in completing development of new technology that will increase development costs and postpone anticipated sales and revenues.
 
As we develop, refine and implement our technology, we may have to solve technical, manufacturing and/or equipment-related issues. Some of these issues are ones that we cannot anticipate because the technology we are developing is new. If we must revise existing manufacturing processes or order specialized equipment to address a particular issue, we may not meet our projected timetable for bringing commercial operations on line. Such delays may interfere with our projected operating schedules, delay our receipt of licensing and royalty revenues from operations and decrease royalties from operations.
 
The market in which we are attempting to sell our technology is highly competitive.
 
The market for our technology is highly competitive on a global basis, with a number of competitors having significantly greater resources and more established market penetration than us. Because of greater resources and more widely accepted brand names, many of our competitors may be able to adapt more quickly to changes in the markets we have targeted or devote greater resources to the development and sale of new technology products. Our ability to compete is dependent on our emerging technology which may take some time to develop market acceptance. To improve our competitive position, we may need to make significant ongoing investments in service and support, marketing, sales, research and development and intellectual property protection. We may not have sufficient resources to continue to make such investments or to secure a competitive position within the market we target.
 
 
19

 
Our business depends on the protection of our patents and other intellectual property and may suffer if we are unable to adequately protect such intellectual property.
 
Our success and ability to compete are substantially dependent upon our intellectual property. We rely on patent laws, trade secret protection and confidentiality or license agreements with our employees, consultants, strategic partners and others to protect our intellectual property rights. However, the steps we take to protect our intellectual property rights may be inadequate. There are events that are outside of our control that pose a threat to our intellectual property rights as well as to our products and services. For example, effective intellectual property protection may not be available in every country in which we license our technology. Also, the efforts we have taken to protect our proprietary rights may not be sufficient or effective. Any impairment of our intellectual property rights could harm our business and our ability to compete. Also, protecting our intellectual property rights is costly and time consuming. Any increase in the unauthorized use of our intellectual property could make it more expensive to do business and harm our operating results. In addition, other parties may independently develop similar or competing technologies designed around any patents that may be issued to us.
 
We have been granted one U.S. patent and have several U.S. patent applications pending relating to certain aspects of our technology and we may seek additional patents on future innovations. Our ability to license our technology is substantially dependent on the validity and enforcement of these patents and patents pending. We cannot assure you that our patents will not be invalidated, circumvented or challenged, that patents will be issued for our patents pending, that the rights granted under the patents will provide us competitive advantages or that our current and future patent applications will be granted.
 
Third parties may invalidate our patents.
 
Third parties may seek to challenge, invalidate, circumvent or render unenforceable any patents or proprietary rights owned by or licensed to us based on, among other things:
 
 
·
subsequently discovered prior art;
 
 
 
·
lack of entitlement to the priority of an earlier, related application; or
 
 
 
·
failure to comply with the written description, best mode, enablement or other applicable requirements.

United States patent law requires that a patent must disclose the “best mode” of creating and using the invention covered by a patent. If the inventor of a patent knows of a better way, or “best mode,” to create the invention and fails to disclose it, that failure could result in the loss of patent rights. Our decision to protect certain elements of our proprietary technologies as trade secrets and to not disclose such technologies in patent applications, may serve as a basis for third parties to challenge and ultimately invalidate certain of our related patents based on a failure to disclose the best mode of creating and using the invention claimed in the applicable patent. If a third party is successful in challenging the validity of our patents, our inability to enforce our intellectual property rights could seriously harm our business.
 
We may be liable for infringing the intellectual property rights of others.
 
Our technology may be the subject of claims of intellectual property infringement in the future. Our technology may not be able to withstand any third-party claims or rights against their use. Any intellectual property claims, with or without merit, could be time-consuming, expensive to litigate or settle, could divert resources and attention and could require us to obtain a license to use the intellectual property of third parties. We may be unable to obtain licenses from these third parties on favorable terms, if at all. Even if a license is available, we may have to pay substantial royalties to obtain it. If we cannot defend such claims or obtain necessary licenses on reasonable terms, we may be precluded from offering most or all of technology and our business and results of operations will be adversely affected.
 
Our ability to execute our business plan would be harmed if we are unable to retain or attract key personnel.
 
Our technology is being marketed by a small number of the members of our management. Our technology is being developed and refined by a small number of technical consultants. Our future success depends, to a significant extent, upon our ability to retain and attract the services of these and other key personnel. The loss of the services of one or more members of our management team or our technical consultants could hinder our ability to effectively manage our business and implement our growth strategies. Finding suitable replacements could be difficult, and competition for such personnel of similar experience is intense. We do not carry key person insurance for our officers.
 
 
20

 
Overseas development of our business is subject to international risks, which could adversely affect our ability to license profitable overseas plants.
 
We believe a significant portion of the growth opportunity for our business lies outside the United States. Doing business in foreign countries may expose us to many risks that are not present domestically. We lack significant experience in dealing with such risks, including political, military, privatization, technology piracy, currency exchange and repatriation risks, and higher credit risks associated with customers. In addition, it may be more difficult for us to enforce legal obligations in foreign countries, and we may be at a disadvantage in any legal proceeding within the local jurisdiction. Local laws may also limit our ability to hold a majority interest in the projects that we develop. The Company has yet to establish any representation offices outside the United States.
 
We do not know if coal processed using our technology is commercially viable.
 
We do not yet know whether coal processed using our technology can be produced and sold on a commercial basis in a cost effective manner after taking into account the cost of the feedstock, processing costs, license and royalty fees and the costs of transportation. Because we have not experienced any full scale commercial operations, we have not yet developed a guaranteed efficient cost structure. We are currently using the estimates for anticipated pricing and costs, as well as the qualities of the coal processed in the laboratory setting to make such estimates. We may experience technical problems that could make the processed coal more expensive than anticipated. Failure to address both known and unforeseen technical challenges may materially and adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.
 
We have experienced large net losses, have little liquidity and need to obtain funds for operations or we may not be able to continue.
 
We have incurred net losses of $170,872,056 since inception. The net losses to date include large non-cash expenses recorded for share-based compensation for consultants and officer compensation. However, in addition to the non-cash expenses, we had other operating expenses, all funded through loans from existing shareholders. In order to meet our current operating budget and anticipated contractual obligations, we estimate that we will need an additional $1,310,005 for the balance of 2011, and $4,500,890 for 2012, based on our current contractual obligations. At September 30, 2011, we had total liabilities of $2,641,857 and cash of only $8,825. If we cannot obtain adequate financing from new funding sources, we will be unable to continue operations or meet our contractual obligations.

Our use of equity as an alternative to cash compensation may cause excessive dilution for our current shareholders.
 
Due to shortage of operating funds and low liquidity, we have issued shares and warrants as compensation for services, including board and officer compensation as well as compensation for outside consultants and other services. This form of compensation has enabled us to obtain services that would not otherwise have been available to us but it has resulted in dilution to our shareholders. Unless we are able to obtain adequate financing in the immediate future, we may be forced to continue to obtain services through the issuance of shares and warrants, resulting in additional dilution to shareholders and potentially adversely affecting any return on investment. The issuance of shares for services has consumed the majority of our previously un-issued shares, and may require us to ask our shareholders to approve an increase of our authorized shares in the near future.
 
Any negative results from the continuing evaluation of our technology or processed coal produced at future facility sites could have a material adverse effect on the marketability of our technology and future prospects.

We are continuing to evaluate the attributes of coal processed using our technology on a laboratory scale. We do not know if these evaluations will result in positive findings concerning the moisture content, heat value, emission-levels, burn qualities or other aspects of our processed coal. Furthermore, even if current evaluations indicate that our processed coal performs to design specifications, we do not know if later tests or larger scale processing will confirm these current results or that the processed coal will be readily accepted by the market. The process of introducing our technology into the market may be further delayed if these test results are negative or if potential licensees conduct their own tests of the processed coal to determine whether it meets their individual requirements and the results are not acceptable. We have conducted numerous tests of our technology using a variety of feed stocks in our laboratories. The ability to use feed stocks from other locations in the United States or overseas will depend on the results of future tests on different types of coal. If these tests limit the range of viable low-grade coal feed stocks for use in our process, site locations for future plants may be limited and the commercial appeal of the process may be less than anticipated. If this continuing process of evaluation and market introduction results in negative findings concerning our process, it could have a material adverse effect on the marketability of our technology and on our financial condition, results of operations and future prospects.
 
 
21

 
Due to the uncertain commercial acceptance of coal processed using our technology we may not be able to realize significant licensing revenues.
 
While we believe that a commercial market is developing both domestically and internationally for cleaner coal products such as coal processed using our technology, we may face the following risks due to the developing market for cleaner coal technology:

 
-
 limited pricing information;
 
-
 changes in the price differential between low- and high-BTU coal;
 
-
 unknown costs and methods of transportation to bring processed coal to market;
 
-
 alternative fuel supplies available at a lower price;
 
-
 the cost and availability of emissions-reducing equipment or competing technologies; failure of governments to implement and enforce new environmental standards; and
 
-
a decline in energy prices which could make processed coal less price competitive.

If we are unable to develop markets for our processed coal, our ability to generate revenues and profits will be negatively impacted.
 
If we are unable to successfully construct and commercialize production plants, our ability to generate profits from our technology will be impaired.
 
Our future success depends on our ability to secure partners to locate, develop and construct future commercial production plants and operate them at a profit. A number of different variables, risks and uncertainties affect such commercialization including:
 
 
-
 the complex, lengthy and costly regulatory permit and approval process;
 
-
 local opposition to development of projects, which can increase cost and delay timelines;
 
-
 increases in construction costs such as for contractors, workers and raw materials; - transportation costs and availability of transportation;
 
-
 the inability to acquire adequate amounts of low rank feedstock coal at forecasted prices to meet projected goals;
 
-
 availability of suitable consumers of chemical by-product produced by our process;
 
-
 engineering, operational and technical difficulties; and - possible price fluctuations of low-Btu coal which could impact profitability.
 
If we are unable to successfully address these risks, our results from operations, financial condition and cash flows may be adversely affected.
 
Future changes in the law may adversely affect our ability to sell our products and services.

A significant factor in expanding the potential U.S. market for coal processed using our technology is the numerous federal, state and local environmental regulations, which provide various air emission requirements for power generating facilities and industrial coal users. We believe that the use of clean-burning fuel technologies such as ours will help utility companies comply with the air emission regulations and limitations. However, we are unable to predict future regulatory changes and their impact on the demand for our technology. While more stringent laws and regulations, including mercury emission standards, limits on sulfur dioxide emissions and nitrogen oxide emissions, may increase demand for our technology, such regulations may result in reduced coal use and increased reliance on alternative fuel sources. Similarly, amendments to the numerous federal and state environmental regulations that relax emission limitations would have a material adverse effect on our prospects.

ITEM 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS

There were no sales of unregistered securities for the three months or nine months ended September 30, 2011, and there were no sales of unregistered securities for the three months or nine months ended September 30, 2010. There was a single sale of securities to the Company’s then Consultant to the Board of Directors, Ignacio Ponce De Leon, a related party, on November 9, 2010, for 2,000,000 shares at the price of $0.04 per share for a total of $80,000.

The above shares were issued in reliance on the exemption from registration pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the regulations promulgated thereunder. The transactions were issuances for services performed, the transactions were all privately negotiated and none involved any kind of public solicitation.
