Chemtrade Logistics Income Fund Expects Beaumont Plant Back Online Late 2008

TORONTO, October 3, 2008 – Chemtrade Logistics Income Fund (TSX: CHE.UN) today announced that its Beaumont, Texas regen/sulphuric acid plant is expected to be back online by late 2008. The plant was shut down following an explosion in the plant’s furnace on August 21, 2008. Longer than anticipated time to submit and receive permits from regulatory authorities for the rebuilding work will delay the mid-November restart which had been previously indicated.

Mark Davis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Chemtrade, said, “Efforts to complete the permitting process are in progress, but are taking longer than we expected. We have begun repairs to the facility wherever feasible and are ready to begin further work once permitting has been completed. Despite not producing at Beaumont, we maintain our second quarter guidance that distributable cash for the 12 months ending June 30, 2009 should be substantially similar to the 12 month period ended June 30, 2008, or about $2.15 per unit.” Mr. Davis added that Chemtrade will provide a further update on Beaumont and other operations when the Fund announces its third quarter results in early November.

Chemtrade operates a diversified business providing industrial chemicals and services to customers in North America and around the world. Chemtrade is one of the world’s largest suppliers of sulphuric acid, liquid sulphur dioxide and sodium hydrosulphite, and a leading processor of spent acid. Chemtrade is also a leading regional supplier of sulphur, sodium chlorate, phosphorous pentasulphide, and zinc oxide.
