Volkswagen's Chattanooga operation has been nominated as a finalist for an Edison Award for its green auto assembly plant.
Also named as finalists in the category are Langson Energy Gas and McLaren Group.
The Edison Awards are sponsored by Nielsen, Discovery Communications, Science Channel, USA Today, CSRware and Applepeak.
Last December, the U.S. Green Building Council awarded LEED Platinum status to the Chattanooga factory, the only auto assembly plant worldwide to hold such a badge.
