Chemtrade Will Maintain Supplies to Customers Despite Vale Inco Sudbury Shutdown



    Chemtrade Declares April Distribution

    TORONTO, April 17 /CNW/ - Chemtrade Logistics Income Fund (TSX: CHE.UN)
announced that Chemtrade's supply of sulphuric acid and liquid sulphur dioxide
to its customers will not be affected by Vale Inco's recent announcement that
its nickel mining and processing facilities at Sudbury will be shut down from
June 1 to July 27, 2009 in response to global demand conditions.
    Mark Davis, President and CEO of Chemtrade noted that although Vale Inco
is Chemtrade's largest supplier of sulphuric acid, Chemtrade has its own
sulphuric acid manufacturing facilities and is also able to source from other
suppliers. Mr. Davis added, "While Chemtrade's product supply of acid from
Vale Inco will be curtailed for the duration of the shutdown, we have built
inventory to prepare for this possibility. With Chemtrade's capabilities and
measures taken to date, we do not expect any disruption to our customers."

    April 2009 Distribution

    Chemtrade also today announced that it has declared a cash distribution
of $0.10 per unit for the month of April 2009 payable on May 29, 2009 to
unitholders of record at the close of business on April 30, 2009.
    Holders of units who are non-residents of Canada will be required to pay
all withholding taxes payable in respect of any distributions of income by the
Fund.
