Super Pollutant Emissions Reduction Act of 2015 or the SUPER Act of 2015
This bill requires the President to establish the Task Force on Super Pollutants to:
- review existing and potential policies and measures that promote the reduction of short-lived climate pollutants, in part by identifying and evaluating programs and activities of the federal government that contribute to a reduction;
- identify and recommend specific federal programs and activities that are duplicative and that can be consolidated to achieve greater efficiency and effectiveness;
- identify gaps where programs do not exist and recommend programs and activities to fill these gaps to reduce short-lived climate pollutants, with an emphasis on industry standards and public-private partnerships;
- identify, compile, evaluate, and develop best practices for reducing short-lived climate pollutants; and
- report to Congress on its findings and recommendations.
A "short-lived climate pollutant" is black carbon, methane, hydrofluorocarbons, tropospheric ozone and its precursors, or emissions from banks of ozone-depleting substances.
