The stack, unless filtered, then ensures maximal dispersion of the vented materials.
That does seem a serious oversight, as a bad accident is thereby made worse.
Are there not any requirements for filtering the hardened stack emissions in case of accident?
In the UK it is termed "Cockcrofts folly" , it did however probably save much of NW England from a lethal dose in 1957. Discuss
