We discuss the rigorous derivation of hydrodynamic limits of the Boltzmann multi-species equation, when the Mach and Knudsen numbers vanish at the same rate. Solutions of the kinetic equations are constructed as fluctuations around local non-equilibrium Maxwellians, whose physical observables solve the limiting macroscopic model of interest. A general hypocoercive formalism is used to develop a uniform (with respect to the small diffusion parameter) Cauchy theory for this perturbative setting and an application to derive the Maxwell-Stefan cross-diffusion system is presented.
