Included in the R78-10 regulations are limitations of visible emissions from the following by-product coke plant emission sources and/or operations:

Rule 203(d)(5)(B)(ii) - charging operations

Rule 203(d)(5)(B)(iv) - coke oven doors

Rule 203(d)(5)(B)(v) - coke oven lids

Rule 203(d)(5)(B)(vi) - coke oven offtake piping

b) The regulations specify maximum time periods during which visible emissions are permitted during charging operations and maximum percentages of doors, lids, and offtake piping that are permitted to emit visible emissions. The purpose of this Rule is to establish procedures by which observers are able to determine the compliance status of by-product coke oven batteries subject to Rules 203(d)(5)(B)(ii), 203(d)(5)(B)(iv), 203(d)(5)(B)(v), and 203(d)(5)(B)(vi).
