  •  30-40% of heat energy will be wasted in heat engin (0+ / 0-)

    You get as much work out of the heat as is feasible and then you dump it to whatever sink (air, water) you are using.  Similar losses for cars, trains, aircraft, whatever.  As for carbon capture, best case would be injecting powdered carbon back where it came from.  Would take a lot of energy to manage that though.
