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.
