Not all companies will suffer because of the EPA's recent decision to mandate emission caps on carbon. And the list of companies that stand to benefit goes well beyond the realm of alternative energy. If states adapt a cap-and-trade policy to meet the EPA's goal, it's very possible that Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (NYSE:KMP) could turn carbon pollution into an additional revenue stream. Thanks to an oil extraction technique already used by Denbury Resources (NYSE:DNR) and Occidental Petroleum (NYSE: OXY), CO2 has value as a commodity, and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners is best positioned to take advantage of it. 

Tune into the video below to find out how this oil extraction technique and the EPA's carbon emission regulations could open a whole new market, and how it could benefit Kinder Morgan.
