The Fuel Analysis, Comparison & Integration Tool (FACIT) provides interactive access to data and information generated from a comparative analysis conducted from 2015-2016. The study, titled Comparative Analysis of Fuels for Cooking: Life Cycle Environmental Impacts and Economic and Social Consideration, evaluated relevant environmental impacts associated with production, distribution, and use of multiple fuels used in cookstoves, while also considering social and economic factors. FACIT allows users to visually compare impacts and trade-offs of different fuels used to provide energy for cooking. Stakeholders involved in making decisions related to optimizing the fuel value chain should find this tool particularly useful. The tool should be used in parallel with the full report analysis and findings, which can viewed under the Resources tab on the FACIT webpage.
