Okay, so here's what you do:

1. Keep the basic refine cap at 8000.
2. Allow players to refine more than 8000, but...
3. Any dilithium refined over 8000 yields 1 refined for every 2 raw dilithium you have.

So, let's say you have 108,000 raw dilithium. You refine your daily 8000 at maximum efficiency. Say you refine the remaining 100,000: you only gain 50,000 refined extra dilithium and the rest is lost as waste product. You wind up with 58,000 refined dilithium.

The refining cap gets the increase a lot of people want, but they'll have to really stop and think about whether they want to waste half their extra raw dilithium to refine the remaining half.
