Sino Clean Energy Completes Installation of Fluid Acoustic Energy CWM System

XI'AN, CHINA--(Marketwire - February 19, 2009) - Sino Clean Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: SCLX) ("Sino Clean Energy," the "Company"), which produces and distributes coal-water mixture in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced that it has completed the installation of a Fluid Acoustic Energy CWM System (the "System") into its current production line, believed to be the first of its kind in the PRC.

The System's technology simplifies the combining process of the basic components of coal-water mixture ("CWM"), thereby reducing the overall amount of raw materials required while increasing the production volume as compared to the traditional production method. Once the System is online, anticipated by the end of the first fiscal quarter of 2009, Company management expects to increase current annual CWM production volume by 250,000 tons. More importantly, the System's technology prevents sedimentation that can result from long-distanced transportation of CWM under the traditional production method, which can impact its combustion and heating proficiencies. To correct for possible sedimentation, CWM is typically transported over long distances in a tumbler similar to what one finds on a cement truck. With the System, CWM can be transported over long distances in a regular fuel tank without sedimentation, thereby reducing transportation expenses.

"We believe that the Fluid Acoustic Energy CWM System represents the latest technological innovation in our industry, and as the first company in China to implement such System, we are continuing our corporate tradition as an industry leader," stated Mr. Baowen Ren, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sino Clean Energy. "We are excited by the business prospects that the System represents. Combined with the steps that we took back in December 2008 to strengthen our corporate governance in compliance with the listing requirements of a senior U.S. exchange, we are optimistic about the outlooks of the Company."
