There's an excellent element available for 'trapping' carbon atoms - it's called oxygen!The problem isn't elemental carbon per se, it's the fact we're releasing tons of 'old' carbon in a very short time in the form of greenhouse gases.If you mean to find an element that is going to strip carbon atoms away from oxygen after we have used fossil fuels that contain it to do work then you are going to use at least as much energy extracting this other element anyway.Geological carbon (coal & oil) should be seen, from mankind's perspective, as an enormous battery storing epochs of sunlight that the Earth has handily been 'charging' up for us.The only option is to leave the remaining coal & oil in the ground and use today's sunlight (in one form or another) for our power needs.
Ok that's your chemistry explanation shell I say the answer ?

Well,well it's Platinum.
layer of Pt can really trap carbon from automobiles
yeah,that's what I am saying !it's too expensive.

There isn't enough Pt to combine with and trap anythung like all the carbon we produce.
