German term or phrase: Reststoffe
Die gesamte angefallene *Reststoffmenge* liegt aktuell auf dem Niveau von 1999 (in %), die Erhöhung in 2000 wurde durch die Lagerbereinigung beeinflußt.

Thanks again.... :0)

Explanation:
remaining (raw) materials inventory or
unused (raw) materials (inventory)

This may be putting too fine a point on it, but assuming these Reststoffe are raw materials, they may not be surplus in the sense that they may definitely be slated for specific jobs on order, but have not been used up or reached the work in process stage at the close of the accounting period.

HTH!
