Any judgements made about combining aspects of impacts is thus tied up in the monetisation approach and is less visible to users and less easy to grasp. In addition, the monetisation step in FCA is the most contentious on two grounds. First, for many monetisation it is morally repugnant as excessive focus on monetisation gives rise to externalities in the first place. Adding more calculative rationality to the problem is therefore seen as being counterproductive. Second, the monetisation step is technically the most difficult: both in terms of finding data from the economics literature that will allow monetisation and also for the fact that different ways of generating data for monetisation will yield very different figures to FCA calculations.
This activity data is then either used directly in the SAM or used to impute the economic, resource use, environmental or social impacts.

In order to model the environmental impact of a project, the profile of air pollutant which will be generated from crude oil of a certain chemical composition has to be estimated for the SAM to be operational.
