So that the waste gases from the smelter don't pollute the city. Before it was built, the sulfur and carbon dioxide wiped out almost all native vegetation in the region.

I remember a mining rep coming to my Halifax, Nova Scotia junior high school to do a presentation back in the 1980s. He talked about the Sudbury super-stack and how it alone represented 1% of global carbon dioxide emissions like it was a great accomplishment.
