Recycling

recycling

(Science: radiobiology) In most tokamaks the pulse length is at least an order of magnitude larger than the particle containment time. Thus on average each plasma ion goes to the wall or limiter and returns to the plasma many times during the length of the discharge. This process is called recycling. (section 9.3 of reference 14, Tokamaks by john Wesson)
