But I see the gap between my microcosm of separating eggshell, plastic cups and bean tins and the inconsequent implementation of environmental measures in the chemical industry.

These tubular structures can contribute to improving a lot of properties of materials. CNT experts are very positive about the benefits of these materials for coatings as well.
