Abstract. We study the motion of free electrons in a doped crystal by means of a lattice gas whose particles interact only by mutual exclusion and perform random walks on Z^d with jump rates depending locally on a disorder field given by i.i.d. bounded variables. We prove the almost sure existence of the hydrodynamic limit in dimensions d>2. The limit equation is a non linear diffusion equation whose diffusion matrix does not depend on the realization of the disorder field and admits a variational characterization.
