Track: Waste Management
Based on a preliminary study, it was found that several catering businesses have not managed waste cooking oil properly. Waste cooking oil that is not managed correctly can cause environmental pollution, and if it is still used, it will cause health problems. This study explored the driving factors that motivate catering entrepreneurs to manage used cooking oil using the DEMATEL (Decision Making Trial Evaluation and Laboratory) approach. Fifteen catering businesses in the eastern part of Yogyakarta are the objects of this research. The results showed that public health was the dominant driving factor influencing other driving factors, most often found in the catering businesses studied, although some catering showed different results. Another result of this study is that the availability of facilities is the factor that has the greatest relationship with other factors. Furthermore, the management's commitment and increasing company profit are also factors that can influence other driving factors. Environmental awareness, social awareness, government regulation, and product innovation are independent factors. One of the benefits of the results is that the government can use it in regulating the used cooking oil management by taking into account these driving factors.
