Marketwire reports that, driven by the U.S. Clean Air Act and EPA regulations, the long-term prospects for ethanol companies such as Pacific Ethanol and BioFuel Energy are looking brighter than ever, according to The Bedford Report. The Bedford Report examines the ethanol industry and provides research reports on Pacific Ethanol, Inc. and BioFuel Energy Corporation. New EPA regulations set forth last month have likely solidified ethanol''s future in gasoline. In January the EPA approved the use of up to 15 percent ethanol in gasoline in vehicles produced during 2001-2006. The EPA had already approved the 15 percent ethanol tolerance for vehicles made in 2007 or later. With the new guidelines, estimates are that the United States will need 15 billion gallons of ethanol per year by 2015 and around 36 billion gallons per year by 2022.
