The first steps in the development of a special cement have been set up in the Belgium Euro-fours SA, later named Techologie des Produits Residuaires (TPR). Mr. J. Cransveld was then the responsible engineer. In the Netherlands, the Project Bureau for Industrial Waste (PBI B.V.) was the leading developer.

The R&D at the end of 1980s was supported by the Belgium Walloon government and in the beginning of 1990s by the Dutch Government Department of Economic Affairs and NOVEM. Prof. Dr. Ir. E. Niël, the former director of APM Consultants BV, contributed also in financing these developments. Several patents were granted providing further confirmation of the original value of these new developments. Both Mr. Cransveld and Prof. Niël are still supportively active in ASCEM B.V.

Since 2007, ASCEM B.V. is a member of the BTE Nederland B.V.
