Disclosure Text Block [Abstract]  
Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements Disclosure [Text Block]


The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements of Clean Coal Technologies, Inc. (“Clean Coal”, the “Company”) 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 2017 as reported in the Form 10K have been omitted.

Net Income (Loss) per Common Share

Basic net income (loss) per share is computed on the basis of the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during each year. Diluted net income (loss) per share is computed similar to basic net income (loss) per share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive. In periods where losses are reported, the weighted-average number of common stock outstanding excludes common stock equivalents, because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company realized a net loss, resulting in outstanding warrants, and outstanding convertible debt having an antidilutive effect. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the dilutive effect of the outstanding warrant conversion options was no shares and the dilutive effect of the outstanding convertible debt was 97,106,263 shares, with a reduction to net income of $3,146,147. For the three months ended September 30, 2017, all potentially dilutive instruments were excluded from the calculation of diluted net loss per share as their inclusion would have been anti-dilutive.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued a new standard related to leases to increase transparency and comparability among organizations by requiring the recognition of Right Of Use (“ROU”) assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet. Most prominent among the changes in the standard is the recognition of ROU assets and lease liabilities by lessees for those leases classified as operating leases. Under the standard, disclosures are required to meet the objective of enabling users of financial statements to assess the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. We are also required to recognize and measure leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented using a modified retrospective approach, with certain practical expedients available.

We elected to early adopt the standard effective January 1, 2018 and have elected the available practical expedients. The standard did not have a material impact in our balance sheets or income statements.
