I have read the Wikipedia article on Generation IV nuclear reactors, but from that article it is not clear to me which of the main reactor types that use nuclear waste to fuel the process. As far as I have been able to understand, Molten Salt Reactors (MSR) and some Sodium-Cooled Fast Reactors (SFR) are capable of doing this. Are there any other other reactor types that also can be fueled by nuclear waste?

Furthermore, when using nuclear waste as fuel, how large a percentage of the waste is actually consumed?
