Murphy-Brown, LLC Key Developments

Murphy-Brown, LLC Announces Research Partnership with Tyton BioEnergy Systems

Murphy-Brown, LLC and Tyton BioEnergy Systems have announced a research partnership to develop new applications for Tyton's non-smoking tobacco crop and the resulting soil amendment, filtration, and feed products within Smithfield's hog production processes. The companies are pursuing mutual goals of protecting the environment while improving economic efficiency through this collaboration. The two companies are establishing field trials with non-smoking tobacco using hog manure as fertilizer. High absorption rates of hog-fertilizer by non-smoking tobacco would enhance environmental outcomes and assist Tyton in obtaining lower-cost fertilizer for its industrial crop. In addition, the companies are pursuing the development of ethanol products using tobacco as raw material rather than corn. Smithfield and Tyton also will develop applications for Tyton's tobacco-based biochar and activated carbon products, which can be used for a wide-range of filtration, land remediation, and soil amendment purposes. Other research activities with Tyton co-products will occur in parallel.

Federal Judge Denies Dismissals of Murphy-Brown Lawsuits

A federal judge has denied Murphy-Brown LLC's motion to dismiss some claims in lawsuits filed by more than 500 neighbors of North Carolina hog farms. The 26 lawsuits claim odors, flies and other problems from farms are nuisances. Murphy-Brown moved to dismiss claims including annoyance and diminution in property value damages. Senior U.S. District Judge Earl Britt this week denied the motion. Murphy-Brown and the plaintiffs agreed, that damages to property market values can't be sought because of the temporary nature of the claimed nuisance.
