T main visible industry in this photo is the paper mill. It is in the foregound and to the left. Algoma steel is behind the green bridge.
The smell is usually from the papermill.
Algoma Steel is the smallest integrated steel mill in Canada and also the most successful at the moment.
You can actually see both in this picture. St Mary's Paper is the brown building on the right. The single smokestack to the left is from Algoma steel. I can remember seeing the flame that sometimes comes out the top from my bedroom window when I was younger.
the "smokestack" to the left is actually releasing steam from #7 blastfurnace's "granulator" which processes molten slag into a sand type material used in the production of cement reducing Algoma's enviromental impact drastically.The large flame aansley83 refers to is actually a burnoff of excess coke oven gas.Referred to in this city as the "Bay View" candle.
Very nice Photo. I was there in August 2008.
