A list of the tallest chimneys of the world.

Timeline of world's tallest chimney

Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, tall chimneys were built, at the beginning with bricks, and later also of concrete or steel. Although chimneys never held the absolute height record, they are among the tallest free-standing architectural structures and often hold national records (as tallest free-standing or as overall tallest structure of a country). In the future, things may change if solar updraft towers (large chimney-like structures) are built.

Unfortunately very little information about the timeline of the world's tallest chimneys is available and so the following table of their development is lacking information:
