EPA announced October 13, 2010, that it is approving 15 percent ethanol blends (E15) in gasoline for model year 2007 and newer cars and light trucks. EPA said it will decide on a similar waiver of the previous limitation on selling fuel that contains more than 10 percent ethanol for 2001-2006 model cars and light trucks after it receives the results of further vehicle testing from the Department of Energy. The Energy Independence Act of 2007 mandated an increase in the overall volume of renewable fuels into the marketplace, reaching a 36-billion-gallon total in 2022. Ethanol is considered a renewable fuel because it is produced from plant products or waste and not from fossil fuels. EPA is also proposing labeling requirements for E15 gasoline pumps and the specification by fuel suppliers of the ethanol content of gasoline sold to retailers. See EPA Press Release, October 13, 2010
