Too press-releasey[edit]

I've added a bit on the SVBR-100, but couldn't face fixing the rest of it. In general this article sounds like it's been cobbled together from press releases about future/vapourware reactors, when a more encyclopaedic tone would be struck by concentrating on the parameters of the historical reactors and then separating out where things might go in the future.82.31.21.203 (talk) 13:26, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

Disadvantages[edit]

"A lead-bismuth reactor will require hundreds to thousands of tonnes of bismuth depending on reactor size." -This figure seems awfully high.
