Carbon dioxide, is a non supporter of ignition, which means it doesn't consume itself and doesn't let burn(a consuming matchstick will smother in a CO2 air). For this property, CO2 is generally utilized as a flame quencher. ... CO2 is non-combustible and dislodges air - thus the oxygen in air required for ignition.
