He Sudbury Smelter T Prior to the construction of the Superstack, the waste gases from the smelter in Sudbury contributed to severe local ecological damage. The use of open coke beds in the early to A. McMillan and G. Foley mid-20th century as well as logging for fuel resulted in a near-total loss of native vegetation. Exposed rocky outcrops were stained black, first by the pollution from the roasting yards, then by the acid rain. In some places there was a blackened and acidified layer that penetrated up to three inches into the once pink-gray granite.

The word “smoke-fog” was first used by Mr. De Voeux in his report to the Manchester Conference of the Smoke Abatement League on this event. While severe pollution incidents have occurred many times throughout history, perhaps the three most famous “air pollution episodes” occurred in the Meuse Valley in 1930, in Donora in 1948 and in London in 1952 (Phalen and Phalen 2012). In the 25 km from Huy to Liege along the Meuse River in the 1920s there were 4 coke ovens, 3 steel mills, 4 glass factories and 3 zinc smelters.

There remains a lot to be done in this area, not only in Canada, but globally as well. That being said, the science has ensured that the most dangerous chemicals are being addressed. The issues that have already been discussed have been isolated from atmospheric components at large because of their specific impacts on health or the environment.
