English translation:Consumables or operating supplies
Explanation:
I agree with Rolf completely. Betriebstoff is a general word for 'operating supplies' or materials which are necessary for operation/production, etc. Without more context, it is then really hard to give a good answer to make it fit your text.

Good luck!
