The world's tallest is actually at GRES-2 Power Station in Kazakhstan

After an exhausting period of research (well, five seconds anyway) I found this by entering "Inco Superstack" in Wikipedia:

"The Inco Superstack in Sudbury, Ontario, with a height of 380 m (1,234 ft), is the tallest chimney in Canada and the Western hemisphere, and the second tallest freestanding chimney in the world after the GRES-2 Power Station in Kazakhstan."
